GSA Releases FY 2018 Per Diem Rates
Today, the federal General Services Agency (GSA) announced new federal lodging per diem rates for Fiscal Year 2018 (FY 2018) for cities across the nation, effective October 1, 2017. The American Hotel & Lodging Association, in conjunction with THLA, coordinates the lobbying for increases in federal per diem rates that affect lodging operators across the State of Texas.

Increase in the Federal CONUS Per Diem Rate
The “CONUS” rate is the default federal per diem rate for all cities that do not have a specific federal per diem rate set for that locale. We are pleased to report that the federal CONUS per diem rate increased from $91 to $93 per night for FY 2018 for federal government travelers.
