CONUS Updates

CONUS Rates: CONUS rates were updated on Friday, September 29, 2017 and have an effective date of October 1, 2017.

Please note: There were changes to rates, including STANDARD CONUS RATE and rates in Kansas.

The file used in SMART can be found at the Department of Defense Travel website. This website also contains a summary of any changes made to CONUS and OCONUS locations.

Additionally, there is a query located in SMART that contains all CONUS locations along with the MIE daily amounts, per diem deductions and lodging rates. The query can be found in Smart at Main Menu>Reporting Tools>Query>Query Viewer. The name of the query is KS_EX_CONUS_RATES. This query will always have the current CONUS rates. Please use the query when entering expense transactions.

CONUS rates in SMART will be updated twice per calendar year on April 1 and October 1 and those rates are to be used in expense transactions.
