B. Procedures

Per diem rates are published on the Internet at​perdiem as an FTR Per Diem Bulletin and published in the Federal Register on a periodic basis. This process ensures timely increases or decreases in per diem rates established by GSA for Federal employees on official travel within CONUS. Notices published periodically in the Federal Register, such as this one, now constitute the only notification of revisions in CONUS per diem rates to agencies.
