FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jim Harte, Office of Governmentwide Policy, Travel Management Policy Division, 202-501-1538.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: The removal of the per diem rates from FTR Part 301, Appendix A, is intended to expedite and simplify the publication of the continental United States (CONUS) per diem rates established by GSA. Instead, travelers are directed to the FTR Per Diem Bulletins at http://www.gsa.gov/perdiem. A notice will be published in the Federal Register to alert readers of new FTR Per Diem Bulletins.

In addition, FTR 301-11.6, Where do I find maximum per diem and actual expense rates? and FTR 302-4.200, What per diem rate will I receive for en route relocation travel within CONUS? are amended to direct travelers to http://www.gsa.gov/perdiem for CONUS travel.
