GSA Releases Federal Per Diem Rates for 2018
The General Services Administration (GSA) recently released federal per diem rates for FY2018 that will go into effect October 1, 2017, which show an increase to the standard continental United States (CONUS) rate from $91 per night for lodging to a new rate of $93. In FY2018, no new locations will become Non-Standard Areas (NSAs) with a per diem rate higher than the standard CONUS rate. There are 14 former NSAs that will move into the standard CONUS rate category including Gillette, WY.
