The General Services Administration announced in a travel bulletin issued Aug. 6 that per diem rates will remain unchanged for the fiscal year starting Oct. 1. The standard rate remains $129 for all states, excluding Alaska and Hawaii. The lodging rate is $83 and the meals and the incidental expenses rate is $46.

However, the GSA noted on their website that there will be about 400 nonstandard areas that will have per diem rates higher than the standard rate for the continental U.S for the fiscal year 2015 based on COLA for those areas, generally metropolitan areas.

The rates are the maximum allowances that federal employees are reimbursed for expenses incurred on official travel from Oct. 1, 2014, to Sept. 30, 2015, the GSA said.
