RMKS/1. In line with section 603 of reference (a), the authority to
prescribe a reduced flat rate per diem for long-term temporary duty has been
repealed. Effective 13 August 2018, members on travel over 30 days will
receive the normal daily per diem rate for the area to which you are
entitled. The reduction to 75 or 55 percent of the locality rate is
terminated. Reduced flat rate per diem for travel over 30 days will apply
through midnight on 12 August 2018. Full per diem applies to any travel
after 12 August 2018.
2. Commander, Navy Personnel Command, Pay and Personnel Management
Department (PERS-2) will release a Pay and Personnel Information Bulletin
(PPIB) in the near future with further guidance to the fleet.
3. On the effective date of reference (a), travelers are advised that
lodging receipts are required for all lodging payments, the actual cost of
lodging not to exceed the full locality lodging per diem rate will be paid,
and the full meals and incidental expenses will no longer be reduced by 75
percent or 55 percent. Members who have already settled their travel claims
and were erroneously reimbursed flat per diem for days after 12 August 2018
are advised to file a supplemental travel claim.
