NASA APPROVAL TO EXCEED PER DIEM LODGING FOR DPS 48/EPSC 11

The three hotels for which the AAS/DPS has reserved room blocks for the DPS48/EPSC11 conference on October 16-21, 2016, exceed the GSA lodging limit of $150 (plus tax). After reviewing the situation, I hereby affirm that for DPS48/EPSC11, travelers whose NASA SMD grants, cooperative agreements and contracts are subject to the Federal Travel Regulations may be reimbursed up to $199 plus tax per night. People with NASA contracts should confirm with their contracting officer. This waiver does not supercede the travel policy of an institution that is more restrictive.
