CONUS Per Diem Rate Changes

FY 2015 Per Diem Highlights

GSA establishes the per diem rates for the lower 48 Continental United States (CONUS), which are the maximum allowances that federal employees are reimbursed for expenses incurred while on official travel.

Two locations will become new NSAs in FY 2015: Kayenta, AZ (Navajo County) and San Angelo, TX (Tom Green County).

Elmore County, ID is now included with the Sun Valley, ID NSA location.  The Middlebury, VT (Addison County) NSA has been combined with the Burlington/St. Albans, VT (Chittenden/Franklin Counties) NSA.  Finally, the Manhattan NSA has been renamed New York City, which more accurately recognizes that GSA no longer sets rates for individual New York City boroughs as had been done in the past.

In FY 2015, five locations that were NSAs in FY 2014 will move into the standard CONUS rate category. They include:

  • Glenwood Springs/Grand Junction, CO
  • Lakeville, CT
  • Chesapeake/Suffolk, VA
  • Lake Geneva, WI
  • Sheridan, WY
