Attention Commonwealth Travelers – Mileage Reimbursement Rates Have Increased
Standard rate increases to 58 cents per mile effective January 1, 2019

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) adjusted the privately-owned vehicle mileage reimbursement rates effective with travel on or after January 1, 2019.

According to Manual 230.1, Commonwealth Travel Procedures Manual, when the GSA rates change, the commonwealth reimbursement rates change with the same effective date. Therefore, effective January 1, 2019, commonwealth reimbursement rates for personal vehicle mileage are:

                  58 cents per mile        Standard Rate

                  20 cents per mile          Other Vehicle Available Rate

Refer to Section 2.3 of Manual 230.1, Commonwealth Travel Procedures Manual for details about when these rates apply.  Any mileage claims entered in ESS/SAP for travel occurring on or after January 1, 2019 will be automatically calculated at the new rates.
