                             CHAPTER 301-10 – TRANSPORTATION EXPENSES


Subpart A –

301-10.8 What is my liability if, for personal convenience, I travel by an indirect route or
        interrupt travel by a direct route?

Excess travel time incurred when traveling by privately owned vehicle in lieu of common carrier
may not be considered an excused absence justifying administrative leave. Application of
Comptroller General Decisions to the charging of annual leave for excess travel time and the
earning of per diem is covered in the following examples:

The following three cases assumes:
    Employee works 8 a.m. - 12 noon, 1 p.m. - 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
    Travel time from temporary duty station to official station will take 4 hours.

CASE 1: - Employee who is on a multiple-day trip delays return to official duty station
from temporary duty station. Employee is finished with official duties at 1 p.m. on Friday.
    Situation A - Employee returns on Saturday instead of Friday afternoon, due to personal
       reasons.
           o Per Diem - Will be constructed as though the employee has returned
              expeditiously on Friday. (Per Diem ends at 6 p.m.)
           o Annual Leave - Employee is considered to be in a travel status for the
              constructed time which would have been spent traveling. No annual leave
              charged.
    Situation B - Employee returns on Sunday instead of Friday afternoon, due to personal
       reasons.
           o Per Diem - Same as Situation A.
           o Annual Leave - Same as Situation A.
    Situation C - Employee returns promptly on Monday morning instead of Friday
       afternoon.
           o Per Diem - If employee is authorized to return on official time, Monday per diem
              would be suspended on Friday 12 noon, and resume again at midnight on Sunday.
              In no event shall per diem be allowed for excess travel time; therefore, only .25
              day per diem is payable on Monday.
           o Annual Leave - 4 hours annual leave would be charged on Friday. Travel time
              on Monday is official time.

CASE 2: - Employee who leaves on a multiple-day trip departs, for personal reasons, from
his/her official duty station earlier than necessary to reach temporary duty station.
Employee must be at temporary duty station on Monday at 1 p.m.
     Situation A - Employee, for personal reasons, leaves on Friday at 1 p.m. for temporary
       duty station.
           o Per Diem - Will be constructed starting Monday morning (per diem starts at 6
               a.m.).
           o Annual Leave - Employee is considered to be in a travel status for the
               constructed time which would have been spent traveling. Four hours of annual
               leave is charged on Friday.
     Situation B - Employee, for personal reasons, leaves on Saturday or Sunday instead of
       Monday morning.
           o Per Diem - Will be constructed starting Monday morning (per diemstarts at 6
               a.m.).
           o Annual Leave - No annual leave charges.

NOTE: For Case 1 and Case 2, record constructed travel time on the T&A as T/C 01 and note it
in the Remarks block of the T&A.

Case 3: - Employee, who is on a multiple-day trip, delays return over nonworkdays.
Employee works his/her normal tour on Friday.
    Situation A - Employee returns on Saturday afternoon or Sunday instead of Saturday
       morning.
           o Per Diem - Will be constructed as though employee returned expeditiously on
             Saturday morning (.50 day per diem payable for Saturday).
           o Annual Leave - No leave charged.
    Situation B - Employee returns promptly on Monday morning.
           o Per Diem - If employee is authorized to return on official time Monday, per diem
             would be suspended on Friday midnight and resume again at midnight on Sunday.
             In no event shall per diem be allowed for excess travel time; therefore, only .50
             day per diem is payable on Monday.
           o Annual Leave - Since employee obtained permission to travel Monday, employee
             would be on regular time.
