The U.S. General Services Administration released the fiscal year (FY) 2020 travel per diem rates, which will take effect on October 1, 2019. By law, GSA sets these rates for the continental United States annually. Per diem rates provide caps, or maximums, to the amounts that can be reimbursed to federal employees for lodging and meals while on official travel. Lodging per diem rates are based on local market costs of mid-priced hotels.
