Friday, August 19, 2016
On Friday, August 12, the General Services Administration’s (GSA) announced its Per Diem Rates for FY 2017, effective October 1, 2016.
The standard continental United States (CONUS) rate increased from $89 per night to $91. There were no new NSAs for FY2017 and three locations that were NSAs in FY2016 will move into the standard CONUS category. None of these three areas are in Virginia. However, last year's Per Diem did see Fredericksburg, Norfolk/Portsmouth, and Prince William/Manassas move from NSA rates to the CONUS rate.
CONUS: Standard Rate for lower 48 Continental United States
NSAs: Non-Standard Areas for which a higher Per Diem Rate is established
The average rate increase over FY 2016, for the 12 Virginia localities (including those in the DC market) with NSA status for FY 2017, is 4.68%, or $6.04.
The below chart outlines the changes from FY 2015 to FY 2016.
