Federal Travel Regulation: Calculating Actual Expense 

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

ACTION: Notice of Federal Travel Regulation (FTR) Bulletin 18-09, 
calculating actual expense reimbursement.


SUMMARY: The FTR allows agencies to reimburse employees up to 300 
percent of the applicable maximum per diem rate under various 
circumstances including, but not limited to, when lodging and/or meals 
are not available within the prescribed allowances for a given 
temporary duty location. The General Services Administration is 
notifying agencies that the FTR permits two methods of calculating 
actual expense reimbursement. The information outlined in FTR Bulletin 
18-09 demonstrates how agencies may calculate actual expense 
reimbursement under each method while staying within the bounds of the 
current 300 percent actual expense ceiling. This Bulletin also provides 
clarity and promotes consistency across the Government. This Bulletin 
is located at www.gsa.gov/ftr under the ``FTR & Related Files'' tab.

DATES: Applicable Date: October 1, 2018.
