See http://www.uscourts.gov/rules-policies/judiciary-policies/ for judiciary travel regulations. See http://www.gsa.gov/portal/content/104877 for government rates for lodging and for meals and incidental expenses. One night’s lodging and meals while on travel will be reimbursed at an actual expense rate not in excess of $245 (plus tax), for travel to Richmond (derived from federal per diem limits for lodging at $113 and meals at $66 per day).
 
vii.
All travel expenses (lodging, meals, parking, ground transportation) must be supported by receipts. Receipts for meals and lodging must be sufficiently detailed to establish that reimbursement is not being sought for alcoholic beverages, safe deposit boxes, in-room movies or other non-reimbursable expenses. For this reason, the hotel or restaurant bill, rather than a credit card receipt must be submitted.
