Governmentwide Travel Advisory Committee Backs Per Diem Process
According to Business Travel News, M&C's sister publication, the Governmentwide Travel Advisory Committee agreed 14-1 that the General Services Administration's current methods for determining per diem rates for government travel are sound, although some tweaks are needed. The newly established advisory committee is charged with reviewing federal travel policies and processes, starting with how the federal per diem rates are set each year. According to BTN, the GTAC also voted unanimously to recommend that all U.S. per diem rates be examined annually. Currently, per diems for standard U.S. areas are reviewed every three years.
