MEMORANDUM NO. 95 - 9

February 17, 1995

TO THE HEADS OF ALL STATE AGENCIES

Attention:Chief Administrative and Fiscal Officers, Business
Managers, and Payroll and Personnel Officers
Subject: Increase in GSA Mileage Reimbursement Rate
  1. GSA Mileage Rate Increased To 30 Cents Per Mile

    According to the December 27, 1994 issue of the Federal Register, the Federal General Services Administration (GSA) has announced an amendment to the Federal Travel Regulations to increase the mileage rate from 25 cents to 30 cents per mile for use of privately-owned automobiles when authorized as advantageous to the Government. This change to federal travel rates is effective for travel performed on or after January 1, 1995.

  2. Impact on State Mileage Reimbursement Rates

    The mileage rate under many State collective bargaining unit agreements is subject to upward revision to 30 cents per mile within thirty days of the upward readjustment by the U.S. General Services Administration. This same provision applies to managerial employees governed by Personnel Regulations. To determine eligibility for this increased rate, agencies should refer to the applicable regulation or collective bargaining agreement. Adhere to established payment procedures.

  3. Retroactive Payments

    The thirty days of upward readjustment would have taken affect on January 31, 1995. Travel that was performed on or after January 31, 1995 should have been reimbursed at the new rate of 30 cents. The following procedures apply to requesting a mileage reimbursement retroactive adjustment.

    1. A new CO-17XP (Employee Voucher), must be completed for the retroactive amount. Indicate on the CO-17XP, this is a "MILEAGE REIMBURSEMENT RETROACTIVE ADJUSTMENT".

    2. Attach copies of the original CO-17XP.

    3. Submit all mileage reimbursement retroactive adjustments on a separate CO-19 Expenditure Batch List.
