WASHINGTON — Today, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) released the fiscal year 2023 continental United States (CONUS) per diem reimbursement rates, effective October 1, 2022, through September 30, 2023. For FY 2023, the maximum lodging allowance rates in some existing per diem localities will increase and the standard CONUS lodging rate will increase from $96 to $98, resulting in 316 locations receiving a maximum lodging allowance higher than the standard rate. The M&IE per diem tiers for FY 2023 are unchanged at $59-$79, with the standard M&IE rate unchanged at $59.
GSA bases the maximum lodging allowances on historical average daily rate (ADR) data, less five percent. However, the COVID-19 pandemic led to unprecedented declines in ADR, followed by a volatile hotel industry recovery. In light of these conditions, GSA made upward adjustments based on recent ADR data. FY 2022 rates, which were based on pre-pandemic data, served as a floor to ensure that maximum lodging allowances for federal travelers are sufficient in FY 2023 as the hotel industry recovery continues.
