U.S. General Services Administration Releases FY2019 Per Diem Rates for Federal Travelers

Washington, DC - - (August 14, 2018) - - The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) today released the fiscal year (FY) 2019 travel per diem rates, which will take effect on October 1, 2018. By law, GSA sets these rates for the Continental United States annually. Based on local market costs of mid-priced hotels, lodging per diem rates provide caps, or maximum amounts, that can be reimbursed to federal employees for lodging and meals while on official travel. As an additional savings measure, GSA’s lodging per diem rate methodology includes taking five percent off of the final average daily rate in each location.
