Travel Expense Statement

How To: Filling Out Travel Expense Statement

Out-of-State Per Diems
Out-of-state per diem rates follow the appropriate GSA rates. To view the GSA rates for travel within the US, click here.  The GSA rates include both the cost of meals and incidental expenses. However, for out-of-state travel, incidental expenses are not reimbursed.  Employees traveling overnight are generally eligible for per diem amounts designed to cover all days on travel status other than the day of departure and the day of return. Travelers are eligible for 75% of the total per diem rate on the first and last day of travel.

High cost areas are the following counties: Chatham, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Fayette, Fulton, Glynn, Gwinnett, & Richmond.  For travel with overnight lodging within Georgia, travelers will now receive 75% of the allowable per diem on the day of departure and return.

Travelers are allowed to exceed the federal per diem rate by up to 25%. Lodging which exceeds the federal per diem rate in excess of 25% must be justified by the traveler on the travel expense statement.
