may exceed on a daily basis the per diem rates in effect as set forth

48 United States. The actual costs may be allowed only if the 
contractor provides the following:
    a. FAR 31.205-46(a)(3)(ii)--A written justification for use of the 
higher amounts approved by an officer of the contractor's organization 
or designee to ensure that the authority is properly administered and
