You're supposed to claim those! lol #policybreaker


Shh I won't tell if you won't tell!


maybe the client meals, but definitely not the dinners (if paid by ACN). not sure what policy you were reading lol




@OP check out the policy and new expense process. Per diem will no longer be paid on meals where someone lists you as an attendee for a company paid meal.


sorry man. looking at the new myTE that was released today. "Meals provided by company or client must be claimed according to policy 710 and 740."


I hope it's not hotel lounge food.

Client catered breakfast and lunch and then team dinners every night

Haha last time we checked the policy 4-5 months ago) it was allowed. Had the same issue get brought up on my project

it's on myTE for a reason lol

Hahah oh well

I'll try and find the email, maybe it got updated

Had a lot of managers sign off on it

New expense system goes into effect this month for NA. Say good bye to the per diem for ACN paid meals

Weak as heck, why no per diem for acn meals?

Because they are company paid lol. I've been reducing my per diem every time I have a meal provided. But I am on federal project, so may be different

I don't think LLP has the ability to lower per diems

How does this affect client provided meals?

@OP sure LLP does. it's an option on myTE per diem expense. Just hope you don't get audited or have a strict PMO

Huh well the MDs and PMO team that are onsite don't have an issue with it, guess we shall what happens with the new policies

Need to vent, also open to advice: Partner and I recently decided to buy a house. We live in a HCOL area and property is expensive but we found something that works for us. Ever since we went forward with the house my mom has been extremely difficult. She had a meltdown because she didn't like the style of the house and demanded we bail. We like the house and also feel like the neighborhood is a good investment, so we did not bail. My mom has always wanted me to live in her house (1/x)
