Senior management expenses
As part of The City’s commitment to an open, transparent and accountable local government we release the Senior Management Expense report twice per year in the spring and fall. It includes line item details, including business travel, meals and hosting, and employee recognition for the Senior Management Team. The Senior Management Team includes the City Manager, general managers and directors.
Budgets for the City Manager and each General Manager are reviewed and approved annually by City Council as part of budget deliberations.

Financial policy governing expenses
The City of Calgary policy FA-011 - Reimbursement of Employee Business Expenses outlines what expenses are allowed and the approval process to be followed. No employee can approve their own expenses. Each individual's expenses are reviewed for appropriateness and accuracy by their supervising authority. The City Manager reviews each General Manager's expenses and the Mayor reviews the City Manager's expenses.
