SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Change in Standard Procedure

    GSA's annual privately owned vehicle (POV) mileage reimbursement 
rate review has resulted in no rate changes when employees use their 
privately owned automobile (POA), their POA when Government owned 
automobiles (GOA) are authorized, their privately owned airplane, and/
or their privately owned motorcycle for official purposes. 
Historically, GSA has determined these rates by reviewing the annual 
standard automobile study conducted by the Internal Revenue Service, as 
well as conducting independent automobile, motorcycle, and aircraft 
studies, and/or by applying consumer price index data. GSA will 
continue to monitor these costs on a monthly basis and will adjust the 
rate if warranted. Any adjustments will be posted in the Federal 
Register and posted as a bulletin on GSA's Web site (www.gsa.gov/ftrbulletins) and on our POV Mileage Reimbursement Rate Web site 
(www.gsa.gov/mileage).
    GSA posts the POV mileage reimbursement rates, formerly published 
in 41 CFR Chapter 301, solely on the Internet at www.gsa.gov/ftr. This 
process, implemented in FTR Amendment 2010-07 (75 FR 72965, Nov. 29, 
2010), ensures more timely updates in mileage reimbursement rates by 
GSA for Federal employees on official travel.
    Notices published periodically in the Federal Register, such as 
this one, and the changes posted on the GSA Web site, now constitute 
the only notification of revisions to privately owned vehicle 
reimbursement rates for Federal agencies.

    Dated: January 6, 2012.
Janet Dobbs,
Deputy Associate Administrator.
