Federal Travel Regulation (FTR); Maximum Per Diem Rates for the Continental United States (CONUS)
The General Services Administration's (GSA's) annual per diem review has resulted in lodging and meal allowance rate changes for locations within the continental United States (CONUS) to provide for the reimbursement of Federal employees' authorized travel expenses covered by per diem. Per Diem Bulletin 08-01 updates the standard CONUS lodging per diem rate as well as the maximum per diem amounts for existing non-standard areas (NSAs) located within CONUS. The standard CONUS lodging rate will increase to $70. All CONUS per diem rates prescribed in Bulletin 08-01 may be found at http://www.gsa.gov/ perdiem. GSA based the lodging per diem rates, including the updated standard CONUS lodging rate, on average daily rate information that the lodging industry reports. The use of such data in the per diem rate setting process enhances the Government's ability to obtain policy compliant lodging where it is needed. In addition to the annual lodging study, GSA identified two new redefined non-standard areas (NSA's), which prompted an out of cycle meal survey for these areas. For a complete listing of pertinent information that must be submitted through a Federal executive agency for GSA to restudy a location if a CONUS or standard CONUS per diem rate is insufficient to meet necessary expenses, please review numbers 4 and 5 of our per diem Frequently Asked Questions at (http://www.gsa.gov/perdiemfaqs).
