On August 6, 2018, SYS 240: Relocation (Household Moves) and Temporary or Indefinite Work Assignments, was approved by President Cross. The policy defines and establishes systemwide requirements for the procurement and payment of employee household relocations and costs associated with temporary and indefinite work assignments.

With new IRS regulations that became effective January 1, 2018, all relocation expenses incurred on or after that date are considered taxable income and subject to applicable income and employment taxes. The revised policy reflects this new law.
