1. Are communication services such as long distance telephone calls home while on official TDY reimbursable?

1 October 2014 and After:

Communication services are covered in the IE portion of per diem rate and are not reimbursable.  Gov’t owned/leased services should be used for official communications.  Expenses, such as cell phone or prepaid minutes use, necessary for official TDY travel are mission-related expenses and not payable under JTR authority

.  Where may I find JTR regulations regarding communication services when performing official TDY travel?
