GSA imposes tighter controls on hotel bookings for federal employees
The GSA didn’t succeed when it tried to lower per diems for government employees, but now it is asserting control over its own employees and requiring that they book hotels through the FedRooms tool.
Excerpt from Federal Times
Only about 5 percent of federal employees’ hotel reservations are through FedRooms, GSA spokesman Dan Cruz said in an email. Less than 10 percent of GSA’s own employees use FedRooms, which until now was recommended for bookings but not mandated, he said.
