Office of Governmentwide Policy, General Services Administration (GSA).


Notice of Per Diem Bulletin 06-04, revised continental United States (CONUS) per diem rates.


The General Services Administration (GSA) has reviewed the lodging rates for the District of Columbia, as well as certain non-standard locations in the States of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Tennessee, and Texas using more current lodging industry data, as well as data on where Federal travelers actually stay when visiting these locations. Also, GSA has reviewed the meals and incidental expenses (M&IE) rate of certain non-standard locations in the States of Illinois, Michigan, Montana, and New Mexico. Finally, GSA is combining Stateline, Nevada with Carson City, Nevada (currently a standard continental United States (CONUS) location), so Carson City's per diem rate will be the same rate that Stateline currently has. The per diems prescribed in Bulletin 06-04 may be found at​perdiem.


This notice is effective February 1, 2006 and applies to travel performed on or after February 1, 2006.
