  • Meals and Incidental (M&IE) expense Studies

    A study is conducted every 3-5 years. In FY 09, a nationwide meals study was completed to more accurately reflect actual prices charged by restaurants in areas frequented by federal travelers. Based upon data received from more than 9,000 restaurants, the M&IE for FY 10 tiers will now range from $39 - $71.


  • The GOV rate is not always the same as the Per Diem rate:

    Instead of offering the per diem rate, hotels sometimes offer a "GOV" rate. This may be higher than the per diem rate in your TDY location and would therefore require approval for actual expense prior to travel. See the FTR Chapter 301, Subpart D-Actual Expense and follow your agencies guidelines.

* makes no guarantees to the accuracy of these rates. For complete information visit: The GSA website. The Government Services Administration (GSA) updates hotel per diem rates for federal travel annually in September. The 2011 per diem rates for hotels will be psoted September 1, 2010. However the GSA can make changes to a hotel's per diem rates (actually, the per diem rate for the corresponding city, zip code, or region) throughout the year, so government travelers should be aware that our per diem rates are updated annually, or when we receive notification of a per diem rate change.

There is no guarantee of room availability.

All hotels are compliant with Fire Safety Act and are registered with the US Fire Administration.
