The General Services Administration (GSA) has announced that the private
vehicle mileage reimbursement rate will be 48.5 cents per mile,
effective February 1, 2007 for Federal agencies. Our intent in State
Travel Policy is to mirror those federal rates. This change was
published in the Federal Register on January 30.
Therefore, OAM 40.10.00.PO Appendix A will be amended to state
"Effective 2/1/07, vehicle mileage is 48.5 cents per mile. State mileage
rates mirror the federal rate and change automatically when the Federal
rates change." Thus, for travel that occurs on or after February 1,
2007, the reimbursement rate for private vehicle mileage will be 48.5
cents per mile.
This change affects all employees. The HRSD Labor Relations Unit had
previously notified employee union representatives that the rates may go
up on January 1, 2007 and that the union would receive notice if the
anticipated increase in the rate occurs. HRSD Labor Relations will
notify the affected employees' union representatives (AEE, IAFF, KFAFFA
and SEIU) about the rate change and effective date. If HRSD receives
any objections, the affected agencies will receive direction from HRSD.
