GSA Releases FY2019 Per Diem Rates

The General Services Administration (GSA) released federal per diem rates yesterday for FY 2019 that will go into effect October 1, 2018, which show an increase to the standard continental United States (CONUS) rate from $93 per night for lodging to a new rate of $94.  
  
In FY 2019, Marietta, GA (Cobb County) will become a Non-Standard Area (NSA) with a per diem rate higher than the standard CONUS rate. There are 21 former NSAs that will move into the standard CONUS rate category:
  • Shelby County, AL
  • Little Rock, AR
  • Kings County, CA
  • Bond/Calhoun/Clinton/Jersey/Macoupin/Madison/Monroe Counties, IL
  • Plaquemines/St. Bernard Parishes, LA

  • Butte/Mead Counties, SD
  • Greene County, VA
  • Warrenton, VA

Federal per diem rates, which establish the maximum amount government travelers may pay for hotel rooms, are established each year based on actual market data compiled and provided by STR.

Government travel is incredibly important to our industry and we continue to share with GSA the importance of maintaining per diems at sustainable rates. Going forward, we will continue working with GSA and the Administration to ensure that lodging per diem rates align with market conditions.
