Travel Regulations

Effective 1 October 2014, the Joint Federal Travel Regulations, Vol. 1 (JFTR), and the Joint Travel Regulations, Vol. 2 (JTR) are consolidated into one volume titled the Joint Travel Regulations (JTR). This action reduced redundant information and the overall number of pages of travel regulations. All issuances should be updated with the correct JTR name and/or paragraph reference(s). If necessary, issuances may be submitted for review, to PDTATAC staff, IAW the requirements in JTR, par. 1020.

DTMO, via the Per Diem, Travel and Transportation Allowance Committee (PDTATAC) staff, manages the regulation development and approval process for the Joint Travel Regulations (JTR) applicable to uniformed personnel, DoD civilian employees and others traveling at DoD expense. DTMO is committed to streamlining the travel and transportation allowances and simplifying the regulations to make them more easily understood by the user.

The PDTATAC mission is to ensure that travel and transportation regulations are, as far as practicable, uniform for all of the uniformed services, and uniform in implementing the Federal Travel Regulation (FTR) for DoD civilian employees IAW DoDD 5154.29. The committee membership is composed of permanent Chair, the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (Military Personnel Policy), a Deputy Assistant Secretary from each of the Military Departments, the Director of Personnel Management, U.S. Coast Guard, the Director, Division of Commissioned Corps Personnel and Readiness, and the Director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Corps. The working level operation of the Committee is carried out through two advisory panels, one for uniformed members (Military Advisory Panel (MAP)) and one for civilian employees (Civilian Advisory Panel (CAP)). The MAP consists of a member from each of the Uniformed Services and a non-voting chair from the PDTATAC staff, and non-voting representatives from DASD (Manpower and Personnel), Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS), and U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM). The CAP consists of a member from each of the Military Services, a member from the Office of the Secretary of Defense representing OSD staff and DoD agencies, a non-voting chair from the PDTATAC staff, and non-voting representatives from the DFAS and USTRANSCOM.

The JTR is revised and updated monthly. Changes are initiated by a MAP/CAP member, PDTATAC staff, and/or outside Agencies/Commands via a MAP/CAP member, or are the result of changes to the law and Service/DoD policy.
