Privately Owned Vehicle (POV) Mileage Reimbursement Rates

AGENCY: Office of Government-Wide Policy (OGP), General Services 
Administration (GSA).

ACTION: Notice of FTR Bulletin 15-02, Calendar Year (CY) 2015 Privately 
Owned Vehicle (POV) Mileage Reimbursement Rates and Standard Mileage 
Rate for Moving Purposes (Relocation Allowances).


SUMMARY: The General Services Administration's (GSA) annual privately 
owned vehicle (POV) mileage reimbursement rate reviews have resulted in 
new CY 2015 rates for the use of privately owned automobiles (POAs), 
POAs when a Government owned automobile (GOA) is authorized, privately 
owned motorcycles, and privately owned airplanes for official purposes. 
Additionally, the POV rate used in conjunction with official relocation 
will change. FTR Bulletin 15-02 establishes the new CY 2015 POV mileage 
reimbursement rates for official temporary duty and relocation travel 
($0.575 for POAs, $0.23 for POAs when a GOA is authorized, $0.545 for 
privately owned motorcycles, $1.29 for privately owned airplanes, and 
$0.23 for moving purposes), pursuant to the process discussed below. 
This notice of subject bulletin is the only notification to agencies of 
revisions to the POV mileage rates for official travel and relocation 
other than the changes posted on GSA's Web site. GSA determines these 
rates by reviewing the annual standard automobile study contracted for 
by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), as well as conducting 
independent automobile, motorcycle and aircraft studies that evaluate 
various factors, such as the cost of fuel, the depreciation of the 
original vehicles costs, maintenance and insurance, and/or by applying 
consumer price index data.

DATES: Effective: December 30, 2014.
    Applicability: This notice applies to travel performed on or after 
January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015.

Change in Standard Procedure

    GSA posts the POV mileage reimbursement rates, formerly published 
in 41 CFR Chapter 301, solely on the internet at www.gsa.gov/mileage. 
Also, posted on this site is the standard mileage rate for moving 
purposes. This process, implemented in FTR Amendments 2010-07, 75 FR 
72965, November 29, 2010, 2007-03, 72 FR 35187, June 27, 2007, and 
2007-06, 72 FR 70234, December 11, 2007, in the Federal Register 
ensures more timely updates in mileage reimbursement rates by GSA for 
Federal employees who are on official travel or relocating. Notices 
published periodically in the Federal Register, such as this one, and 
the changes posted on the GSA Web site, now constitute the only 
notification to Federal agencies of revisions to the POV mileage 
reimbursement rates and the standard mileage reimbursement rate for 
moving purposes.

    Dated: December 16, 2014.
Alexander J. Kurien,
Deputy Associate Administrator, Office of Asset and Transportation 
Management, Office of Government-Wide Policy.
