Per Diem/Subsistence Table


Effective October 1, 2017

The Per Diem Table is based on the city and county you are traveling to. If your city is not listed in this table you need to determine if the county is listed. Use the National Association of Counties Website to find the county of the city you will be traveling to. If your county is not listed then it is the lower per diem of $31/day.

A subsistence allowance amount covers meals and other expenses incurred while traveling away from home OVERNIGHT. By dividing the day into three meal periods, the computation is as follows:

6:01 a.m. to 12:00 noon

Breakfast

12:01 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Lunch

6:01 p.m. to 12:00 midnight

Dinner

(NOTE: The period of time from 12:01 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. may be used to extend either the breakfast or dinner meal period as needed.) These times apply to the time zone the actual travel occurs in.

There is a subsistence amount for each period, or fraction thereof, while an individual is in approved travel status and away from the University for a minimum of 24 hours. (See Registration Fees section for meals included in registration, etc.) There are currently five different subsistence allowance levels. The 25% column represents the Per Diem amounts for those that do not keep meal receipts. Travelers must decide to use either the standard allowance levels, retaining all meal receipts or using the 25% Per Diem level.

If your city is not listed on the per diem rate listing, have you looked at the county location? The city could be located within one of the counties listed. The following commercial website may help you determine what county your city is located. National Association of Counties Website

  • Unless otherwise specified, the per diem locality is defined as "all locations within, or entirely surrounded by, the corporate limits of the key city, including independent entities located within those boundaries."
  • Per diem localities with county definitions shall include "all locations within, or entirely surrounded by, the corporate limits of the key city as well as the boundaries of the listed counties, including independent entities located within the boundaries of the key city and the listed counties."
  • When a military installation or government-related facility (whether or not specifically named) is located partially within more than one city or county boundary, the applicable per diem rate for the entire installation or facility is the higher of the two rates which apply to the cities and/or counties, even though part(s) of such activities may be located outside the defined per diem locality.


Foreign Travel Subsistence Allowance

The current rate for FOREIGN SUBSISTENCE is $64.00 per 24-hour day or the actual meal costs with receipts while in approved foreign travel status.
