Change in Standard Procedure
GSA's annual privately owned vehicle (POV) mileage reimbursement rate review has resulted in no rate changes when employees use their privately owned automobile (POA), their POA when Government owned automobiles (GOA) are authorized, their privately owned airplane, and/or their privately owned motorcycle for official purposes. Historically, GSA has determined these rates by reviewing the annual standard automobile study conducted by the Internal Revenue Service, as well as conducting independent automobile, motorcycle, and aircraft studies, and/or by applying consumer price index data. GSA will continue to monitor these costs on a monthly basis and will adjust the rate if warranted. Any adjustments will be posted in the Federal Register and posted as a bulletin on GSA's Web site (www.gsa.gov/ftrbulletins) and on our POV Mileage Reimbursement Rate Web site (www.gsa.gov/mileage).
GSA posts the POV mileage reimbursement rates, formerly published in 41 CFR Chapter 301, solely on the Internet at www.gsa.gov/ftr. This process, implemented in FTR Amendment 2010-07 (75 FR 72965, Nov. 29, 2010), ensures more timely updates in mileage reimbursement rates by GSA for Federal employees on official travel.
Notices published periodically in the Federal Register, such as this one, and the changes posted on the GSA Web site, now constitute the only notification of revisions to privately owned vehicle reimbursement rates for Federal agencies.
Dated: January 6, 2012.
