GSA wants to omit travel allowance option for feds
In the midst of increased scrutiny of conference and travel spending in the federal government, the General Services Administration is looking to prohibit use of a lodging allowance for feds, Government Executive reports.
According to the article, GSA has submitted a proposed rule change that would no longer allow feds to be reimbursed after exceeding the maximum lodging per diem rate by up to 25 percent when attending conferences.
The proposal, which was published this week in the Federal Register, is part of the agency’s effort to rein in travel spending, the report notes.
