WE ALSO AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING:

None of the funds that will be used to support these travel costs come from any federal grants or from any contracts with the Department of Health and Human Services, or from the regulated industry or trade associations.

We also understand that FDA requires that its employees pay directly for all of their travel costs and that we will be billed for these costs by FDA after the trip has been completed and the traveler’s claim has been submitted to FDA. We further understand FDA’s requirements that costs of employee travel accommodations may not be subsidized in any way, and assure that we will comply with that policy. Any room charges that are arranged for FDA employees by our organization will not be less than the hotel would normally charge to the traveling public, with the sole exception of volume discounts made available to us by the hotel. Our organization will not otherwise arrange for or make any additional payments to the hotel to defray room costs for FDA employees.
