Temporary Duty and Relocation Travel of Employees to Areas 
Impacted by the Wildfires in California

AGENCY: Office of Governmentwide Policy, General Services 
Administration (GSA).

ACTION: Notice of Federal Travel Regulation (FTR) Bulletin 08-02.


SUMMARY: The General Services Administration (GSA) has issued FTR 
Bulletin 08-02. FTR Bulletin 08-02 informs agencies that certain 
provisions of the FTR governing the authorization of actual subsistence 
expenses for official travel (both TDY and relocation) are temporarily 
waived as a result of the Emergency Declaration signed by the President 
on October 23, 2007, in response to wildfires in parts of California. 
It is expected that finding lodging facilities and/or adequate meals in 
the affected areas may be difficult, and distances involved may be 
great resulting in increased costs for per diem expenses. FTR Bulletin 
08-02 became effective on October 24, 2007 and will remain effective 
until January 24, 2008, unless extended or rescinded by GSA. This 
bulletin and all FTR bulletins are located at gsa.gov/bulletin.
