GSA per diem rates

A decoder ring for GSA per diems

Managing travel expenses for government employees and contractors can be complicated, with per diems rates varying by city and changing every year.

Certify, a provider of cloud-based travel and expense management software, announced it has added GSA per diem services to its systems, simplifying travel and expense reporting for federal employees and contractors required to comply with GSA’s reimbursement policies.

With Certify GSA capabilities, administrators can configure travel and expense reporting requirements using the federal standard allowances established each year. Once configured, Certify calculates allowable reimbursable amounts based on the date of expense and destination. Additional variables affecting reimbursable rates -- such as meal combinations, incidental expenses, reimbursable type and travel days -- are also included. All calculations are compared to the most current GSA-supplied data to ensure accuracy and streamline the approval process.

The new Certify GSA capabilities are included with the Certify Enterprise Plan and are part of the integrated Certify system, which also provide advanced reporting tools for greater visibility into travel and expense management expenses. Administrators can easily see their most frequently traveled destinations, which employees are their most active travelers, spend by department and more.

“Navigating the requirements for GSA per diems and reimbursement is anything but simple,” said Robert Neveu, Certify's president and CEO, said. "Now with available GSA functionality, Certify makes travel and expense management easy for even the most complicated transactions and policies."
