A. Background

After an analysis of the per diem rates established for FY 2009 (see the Federal Register notice at 73 FR 46271, August 8, 2008), the per diem rate is being changed in the following locations:

State of Idaho

  • Boundary County.
  • Bonner County.
  • Teton County.
  • Bonneville County.
  • Fremont County.

State of Maryland

  • Frederick County.

State of South Carolina

  • Lexington County.

Per diem rates are published on the Internet at​perdiem as FTR per diem bulletins. 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.
