4.  Substance. The General Services Administration (GSA) reviews and revises Federal per diem rates for locations in the United States, and mileage rates for both privately owned and government furnished vehicles. The rates are used to establish maximum reimbursement rates for Federal travelers. GSA publishes the CONUS per diem rates on-line at:
