    The CONUS per diem reimbursement rates prescribed in Bulletin 22-01 
may be found at https://www.gsa.gov/perdiem. GSA bases the maximum 
lodging allowance rates on average daily rate, a widely accepted 
lodging industry measure. If a maximum lodging allowance rate and/or a 
meals and incidental expenses (M&IE) per diem reimbursement rate is 
insufficient to meet necessary expenses in any given location, Federal 
executive agencies can request that GSA review that location. Please 
review questions six and seven of GSA's per diem Frequently Asked

special review process. In addition, the Federal Travel Regulation 
(FTR) allows for actual expense reimbursement as provided in Sec. Sec.  
301-11.300 through 301-11.306.
    For FY 2022, all current non-standard area (NSA) maximum lodging 
allowance rates will remain at FY 2021 levels. The standard lodging 
rate will also remain unchanged at $96. The M&IE reimbursement rates 
were revised for FY 2022; they were last revised in FY 2019. The M&IE 
NSA tiers are revised from $56-$76 to $59-$79, and the standard M&IE 
rate is revised from $55 to $59.
    Notices published periodically in the Federal Register now 
constitute the only notification of revisions in CONUS per diem 
reimbursement rates to agencies, other than the changes posted on the 
GSA website.
