Bottom Line Up Front:
Starting November 1st 2014 travelers that fall under the Joint Federal Travel Regulations will receive 75% of their Lodging and Meal expense for travel spanning 31-181 days. They will receive 55% of their lodging and meal expense for travel spanning 181+ days. Travel less than 31 days remains unchanged.
This change is a direct result of belt tightening across all of the Department of Defense and is reflected in the most recent Joint Federal Travel Regulations.
