The University System of Georgia (USG) and State Accounting Office (SAO) have advised that employees can be reimbursed for the incidental portion of the per diem when the travel location is outside of the Continental United States (OCONUS).  This includes all foreign locations, Hawaii, Alaska, and the US territories of Puerto Rico, Guam, Virgin Islands, and American Samoa.  

Effective October 1, 2022, the full per diem rate (meals + incidentals) will be used for these locations in Workday for travel dates of October 1, 2022 and after. The GA Tech travel policy is being updated to reflect this change.
