Effective October 1, 2016

All lodging rates are governed by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) rates effective October 1, 2016. The traveler must search for the travel destination using the search criteria on the website:  


Note:  The travel destination or lodging destination is the city or county in which the hotel is physically located. The hotel's mailing address should not be used for verification of city/county.  If the hotel is not within the city limits, the county in which it is located should be used for lodging rates.  If a location is not listed in the GSA table, the standard rate applies.

The M&IE Rates located at the link below provide individual meal reimbursement amounts.  These rates should be used to determine the maximum meal reimbursement amounts for official business meals and.or the M&IE reduction.

The M&IE must be reduced for the applicable meal when meals are provided at no cost during an overnight travel period.  Refer to the Prorations and Reductions section for additional guidance.  The M&IE Rates listed on the website include amounts for the 75% travel days.  The M&IE Rates should be used unless a traveler needs to make an adjustment for provided meals, as noted in the Prorations and Reductions Section.
