The General Services Administration's (GSA) annual privately owned vehicle (POV) mileage reimbursement rate reviews have resulted in new CY 2015 rates for the use of privately owned automobiles (POAs), POAs when a Government owned automobile (GOA) is authorized, privately owned motorcycles, and privately owned airplanes for official purposes. Additionally, the POV rate used in conjunction with official relocation will change. FTR Bulletin 15-02 establishes the new CY 2015 POV mileage reimbursement rates for official temporary duty and relocation travel ($0.575 for POAs, $0.23 for POAs when a GOA is authorized, $0.545 for privately owned motorcycles, $1.29 for privately owned airplanes, and $0.23 for moving purposes), pursuant to the process discussed below. This notice of subject bulletin is the only notification to agencies of revisions to the POV mileage rates for official travel and relocation other than the changes posted on GSA's Web site. GSA determines these rates by reviewing the annual standard automobile study contracted for by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), as well as conducting independent automobile, motorcycle and aircraft studies that evaluate various factors, such as the cost of fuel, the depreciation of the original vehicles costs, maintenance and insurance, and/or by applying consumer price index data.
