GSA Announces Governmentwide Travel Advisory Committee

Dec. 27, 2012

WASHINGTON -- Today, the U.S. General Services Administration announced the formation of a new Governmentwide Travel Advisory Committee, which is another step in implementing transparent travel regulations and policies. GSA is now accepting applications for this new committee, which will review existing travel policies, processes and procedures for federal government travelers, beginning with the methodology by which annual adjustments are made to the Federal Per Diem rate.

The committee’s members will be drawn from the travel industry, local and state governments, travel and convention bureaus, and representatives from corporations and the federal government. The committee will address current industry and federal travel trends while also providing advice and recommendations for improvements that will increase travel efficiency and effectiveness, reduce costs, promote sustainability, and incorporate industry best practices.

GSA’s Office of Governmentwide Policy, who will house the new committee, oversees federal travel regulations that help federal agencies plan necessary travel in an effective and efficient manner at the lowest logical travel cost.

The notice for the new committee was published in the Federal Register. Individuals interested in being considered for membership on this committee should submit a letter of nomination stating the name, affiliation, field of expertise, qualifications and a complete professional biography and/or resume via mail to:
