Fiscal Year 2017 Per Diem Rates Effective Oct. 1

Published September 8, 2016

The General Services Administration (GSA) announced the lodging and meal per diem reimbursement rates for fiscal year 2017. The rates are effective for travel beginning Oct. 1, 2016.

The GSA establishes the per diem rates, which are the maximum allowances for reimbursement of expenses incurred while on official travel.

The federal rates pertain to State and Research Foundation-funded travel costs. UBF-funded travelers have the option of using the federal per diem rates or actual costs, but not both.

All per diem rates are posted on the Administrative Services Gateway website, under Traveling for Business.
