What Is a Mileage Log Template?
A mileage log is simply a place to track all the miles driven as a result of a project. Project managers track miles driven because; where miles are reimbursable from the project budget, they represent an expense. By tracking mileage, we’re better able to monitor and control the project budget.
Multiple members of the project team might be required to travel for the benefit of the project. When this happens, a standard form makes tracking the numbers a little easier.
The mileage log template provided below captures the name of the project member, the name of the project, the name of the project manager, the date of a trip, a description of the trip, the beginning trip mileage, the ending trip mileage, the total trip miles, and the total project miles.
Who Creates the Mileage Log?
A mileage log is created by all those who incur mileage as a result of the project and who will also be reimbursed for that mileage from the project budget.
What Are the Inputs?
Inputs to a mileage log are rather straight forward. Simply input the date driven, a description of the trip, the starting mileage and the ending mileage. The template provided below will automatically calculate the total trip miles and the total miles driven during the life of the project.
How Is It Used?
The mileage log template is used by the driver to keep track of miles driven. At specific intervals, it’s provide to the project manager so that all miles can be accounted for and paid.
