Flat rate per diem policy terminated


Effective August 13, President Donald Trump signed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019, which includes an immediate repeal of the authority to prescribe a reduced flat rate per diem for long-term temporary duty travel.


Flat rate per diem for long term TDY (+30 days) shall only apply for travel through midnight on August 12, 2018. 

As of August 13, 2018, normal per diem rules, including the following, apply:

-- Lodging receipts are required for all lodging payments

-- The actual cost of lodging not to exceed the full locality lodging per diem rate will be paid

-- The full meals and incidental expense (M&IE) will no longer be reduced by 75% or 55%
