Update to Policy 515 Section 7 Lodging Reimbursement - Effective October 1, 2015

Policy 515  Travel – Employees

Effective October 1, 2015 the GSA (U.S. General Services Administration) for Employee In-State Lodging has been adjusted for several select counties in ND.  The Accounting Office website and North Dakota Hotel Reference, have been updated to reflect this change.

In-State Lodging:
Maximum of ninety percent of the GSA rate for lodging in North Dakota plus applicable state and local taxes. As of October 1, 2015, the GSA rate for lodging in ND was $89, therefore the maximum amount that can be claimed is $80.10 plus applicable taxes ($89 x 90% = $80.10). The GSA will update their rates periodically during the biennium and the allowable lodging reimbursement will also change at that time.

See city/county rate exceptions chart by clicking on the below link. The amounts shown are 90% of the GSA rates and are the maximum state reimbursable rates that can be claimed, plus applicable state and local taxes. These rates are effective October 1, 2015.
