Federal Travel Regulation: Reimbursement of Fees for 
Nonconventional Lodging

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

ACTION: Notice of Federal Travel Regulation (FTR) Bulletin 19-04, 
Reimbursement of fees for conventional and nonconventional lodging.


SUMMARY: Per the Federal Travel Regulation (FTR), agencies may 
reimburse employees for the use of nonconventional lodging ``when there 
are no conventional lodging facilities in the area (e.g., in remote 
areas) or when conventional facilities are in short supply.'' As the 
use of nonconventional lodging amongst Federal travelers has grown, so 
have questions about the associated fees agencies may reimburse. FTR 
Bulletin 19-04 clarifies what fees agencies may reimburse when 
employees use either conventional or nonconventional lodging while on 
official temporary duty (TDY) travel. This Bulletin is located at 
www.gsa.gov/ftr under the ``FTR & Related Files'' tab.

DATES: Applicable date: February 13, 2019.
