Termination of Flat-Rate Per Diem During Long Term TDY - Flag Voice #489

On Monday, 13 August 2018, the President signed the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2019. In the NDAA there is a section, entitled: “Prohibition on Per Diem Allowance Reductions Based on the Duration of Temporary Duty Assignment or Civilian Travel,” which includes a repeal of the authority to prescribe a reduced flat rate per diem for long-term temporary duty (TDY) travel. The policy effecting per diem became effective immediately. This means that flat rate per diem (for travel over 30 days) applies through midnight of the day BEFORE the Act was signed, and normal per diem rules apply as of the date of signature; this applies to members currently performing TDY.
