Document Number: 2019-22324
Type: Rule

Agency: General Services Administration, Agencies and Commissions
GSA is amending the FTR to change the definition of ``payment in kind''. The new definition provides that a waived or discounted registration fee provided by the non-Federal sponsor of a meeting or similar function is not a payment in kind to the agency for the day(s) an employee speaks, participates in a panel, or presents at the event. This rule also makes miscellaneous related corrections.
