CHAPTER 9 TRAVEL Reimbursement for travel cannot be made unless a travel order is issued or approved by the Secretary of the Navy   (SECNAV).   SECNAV’s   authority   has   been delegated  or  redelegate  to  other  officials  to  issue  orders directing a member or a group of members to travel between designated points The Joint Federal Travel Regulations  (JFTR),  volume I, and the U.S.  Navy  Travel Instructions  (NTI)  define  travel  status  and  contain detailed  requirements  for  travel  orders. A travel order establishes, in writing, the conditions for official travel and transportation at government expense  and  provides  the  basis  for  the  traveler’s reimbursement.  The  principal  type  of  travel  orders  that Yeomen  (YNs)  are  concerned  with  are  cost  temporary additional  duty  (TAD)  orders. TAD orders are a form of temporary duty (TDY) that  involves  one  journey  away  from  the  member’s permanent duty station (PDS) in the performance of prescribed duties atone or more places and directs return to the starting point upon completion of such duties. Personnel on TAD remain assigned to the PDS from which  they  proceeded  on  TAD. TRAVEL TERMS As  a  YN,  you  must  become  familiar  with  the terminology  used  in  travel  and  know  under  what circumstances travel allowances are authorized and when  they  are  paid.  The  travel  terms  and  allowances most frequently encountered are as follows: l  Mileage  allowance  in  lieu  of  transportation (MALT)    is an allowance paid on a per mile basis for the official  distance  between  the  authorized  points  of  travel to members performing travel at personal expense under permanent change of station (PCS) or TAD orders. . Per diem is an allowance designed to offset the cost  of  lodging,  meals,  and  incidental  expenses  incurred by a member while performing travel, TDY, or TAD away  from  the  PDS.  The  allowance  under  the lodgings-plus system is established on the basis of the actual amount the member pays for lodging plus a prescribed  amount  for  meals  and  incidental  expenses (M&IE). A per diem allowance is payable for whole days, except for the day of departure from and the day of return to the PDS, in which case it is computed on a quarter-day  basis. Applicable  reductions  and  deductions  for  meals  are made based on the availability of government facilities (quarters  and  meals).  Per  diem  rates  inside  the continental  United  States  (CONUS)  are  prescribed  in the JFTR, volume I, appendix D, part I, and per diem rates for locations outside CONUS are prescribed in appendix   B,   part   1. .  Miscellaneous  expenses  are  certain  miscel- laneous  expenses  that  are  not  covered  by  another allowance  and  are  reimbursed  to  a  member  incurring additional expenses while in a travel status. Specific expenses authorized for reimbursement are listed in the JFTR, volume I, chapter 4, part F. l Common carrier is a firm finishing commercial transportation as a public service underrates prescribed by lawful authority. It includes railroad, bus, airplane, or ship. . Government transportation request (GTR) is a document used to procure passenger transportation and/or  specified  passenger  transportation  services  or accommodations from common carriers for members authorized  to  travel  on  official  U.S.  Government business. Transportation furnished is generally the most cost-efficient  and  quickest  way  to  travel  between authorized  points. .  Transportation  in  kind  is  transportation  provided on a government-owned conveyance at no cost to the member. Table 9-1 lists the mileage allowance in lieu of transportation (MALT) and selected per diem rates. Before we go any further, remember that the rates listed in table 9-1 were current at the time this training manual was written. We will use these rates as we go through travel allowance computations. Although some of these rates  will  still  be  the  same,  you  must  refer  to  the appropriate section of the JFTR, volume 1, and use the current  rates  of  MALT,  per  diem,  and  other  travel allowances. 9-1
