LANL Perdiem
« on: Feb 11, 2009, 12:04 »
 :(In November of 2008 LANL Procurement personnel made the decision to revamp the way perdiem is being paid to contractors working at Los Alamos.  As of Dec. 1, 2008 they will only pay perdiem for housing related costs, validated with receipts, up to but not to exceed $82 per day.  Not to include what LANL procurement determines to be excessive.  More than basic telephone, more than basic cable TV, house cleaning services, and etc.  They will pay for 1 trip/month to home residence as long as the total cost plus housing costs do not exceed an average of $82 per day.  For those who rent an apartment they are reducing the M&IE portion ($49/day) to 55% or $26.95 per day for the days not including those when traveling to and from the home of residence.  The one trip home includes those trips that people who live in driveable range commute home (mileage to and from once per month).  So you may want to consider this for positions at LANL.

I am at LANL as a contractor, and haven't heard anything about this, but the contract I am under was written before Dec '08 so maybe at contract renewal time this will become an issue.  I'm leaving soon anyway, but this change would definitely affect my decision to come back!

Another new wrinkle to the issue.  When traveling home LANL reduced the M&IE to $20.21 on the day of travel and 20.21 on the return day.  In addition they will not pay more than $30.00 for basic telephone and no long distance charges or fees.  Basic cable is now limited to $60 and no internet allowed.  Its getting worse daily.
