GSA creates mobile app for per diem

Tuesday - 9/6/2011, 11:19am EDT

The General Services Administration says the section of its website that includes information on per diem reimbursement rates is among its most highly trafficked. So the agency decided to create a mobile application to display the same information. It includes government reimbursement rates for lodging, meals and incidentals. The agency is exploring the idea of letting the app automatically detect a user's location and provide local rates. It's available for iPhone and Blackberry right now. Android is next.
