The General Services Administration (GSA) has released federal per diem rates for FY 2018 that will go into effect October 1, 2017. There is an increase to the standard continental United States (CONUS) rate from $91 per night for lodging to a new rate of $93.
In FY 2018, no new locations will become Non-Standard Areas (NSAs) with a per diem rate higher than the standard CONUS rate.

Federal per diem rates, which establish the maximum amount government travelers may pay for hotel rooms, are established each year based on actual market data compiled and provided by STR.
