Federal Travel Regulation (FTR); Relocation Allowances; Notice of 
GSA Bulletin FTR 09-03

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

ACTION: Notice of a bulletin.


SUMMARY: On December 11, 2007, the General Services Administration 
(GSA) published FTR Amendment 2007-06 in the Federal Register (72 FR 
70234) specifying that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Standard 
Mileage Rate for moving purposes would be the rate at which agencies 
will reimburse an employee for using a privately-owned vehicle for 
relocation on a worldwide basis. The amendment indicated that the 
change to the IRS Standard Mileage Rate for moving purposes applied to 
relocations on and after September 25, 2007, and that GSA would publish 
a bulletin announcing any changes to that rate made by the IRS 
thereafter. On November 24, 2008, the IRS announced that as of January 
1, 2009, the relocation mileage rate would decrease to $0.24 per mile 
for the 12 month period ending on December 31, 2009. Thus, the 
reimbursement rate for relocation will also be $0.24 for the same 
period. GSA Bulletin FTR 09-03 may be found at http://www.gsa.gov/federaltravelregulation.

DATES: The bulletin announced in this notice became effective December 
12, 2008, and applies to relocations performed on or after January 1, 
2009 until December 31, 2009.
