Government Wide Changes to Travel Policy That Emphasize Sustainable Travel


“We have been asked to issue an S (or statutory) item to immediately implement Government wide changes to travel policy that emphasize sustainable travel.  OMB issued a memorandum on Dec 14, 2023, that prioritizes sustainable transportation by encouraging use of electric vehicles, rail, and public transit during official travel.  These changes expound on current policy in that agencies should continue to select modes of transportation that are advantageous to the Government.  The change with the greatest impact to the JTR is that a POV will no longer be automatically considered advantageous if the trip is 400 miles or less one way and that all commercial travel options must be considered before a POV is authorized.  Note, the AO may still authorize a POV as being advantageous but only after considering all available commercial options, costs, and the mission.  The intent is to publish these changes in the JTR by March 1, 2024.”

This is the official guidance disseminated to the agencies: M-24-05 (whitehouse.gov)
