FY22 GSA Per Diem Rate Update

The University of Alabama uses the GSA per diem rates to reimburse employees for meals and incidentals (M&IE) while traveling outside of the State of Alabama but within the Continental United States.  The U.S. GSA just announced the FY2022 per diem rates, effective October 1, 2021, and the M&IE reimbursement rates were revised. The M&IE tiers range from $59-$79, and the standard M&IE rate is now $59.  GSA has also released a new per diem tool  that lets you enter in location and dates of travel to obtain your rates.  Please use this information to plan and budget accordingly for your FY22 travel.
