*The following are pointers regarding some of the information that must be
entered onto the google spreadsheet:*

   - MEALS AND INCIDENTAL EXPENSES (M&IE): The Federal per-diem allowance
   is $64/day.  M&IE must include deductions for the first and last day of
   travel (allow only 75% of M&IE for each day).

   - PAYMENT METHOD: Conference registration fee includes breakfast for the
   full week and Thursday's lunch. Please make sure you reduce the M&IE for
   the breakfast and lunch. The employee’s Federal travel card must be used to
   pay the registration fee.  (The purchase card should NOT be used).
   Employees may register for the conference only after the conference package
   is approved by DOC.

   - LODGING: The Federal per diem lodging rate is $117/day for Kansas
   City, MO. and lodging state taxes are exempt.  When selecting lodging,
   Federal employees are required to use the FedRooms website to identify
   hotels in the area that have agreed to discounted rates through GSA.  If no
   rooms are available via FedRooms, or no rooms are available at or below the
   allowable lodging rate, then an explanatory note must be included as
   described below.  Hotel rooms can be booked now, provided the amount is
   fully refundable.

   - GROUND TRANSPORTATION: Include rental car and/or POV mileage.  POV
   mileage rate is $0.54/mile for automobiles.

   - MISCELLANEOUS COSTS: Be sure to concisely list the basis for all
   miscellaneous fees.  Miscellaneous costs include for example, taxi,
   parking, ATM, and baggage fees.

   - TRAVEL DATES:  If your travel dates are before or extend after the
   conference end, it is important to explain why. Please provide a concise
   explanation in the last column of the google document.  (i.e., attend
   meeting at local NOAA office, etc.).

If you have questions, feel free to contact me.
