Integration with GSA for CONUS Per Diem Rates

Integration with GSA for CONUS Per Diem Rates is an add on that lets us override the meal and incidental expenses with GSA rates that are downloaded from the GSA government website with government rates available per calendar. Depending on your needs, Phoenix Business Consulting offers a customized functionality to ease the process of configuring and maintaining rates for such calculations in the system.

Due to automatic calculation of the lodging and the meals/incidental expenses rates, we can set first and last day allowances (normally 75%). The data manager allows us to import these rates for a specific validity period. Mass data maintenance for rates is also possible through this functionality. This functionality is also available through the standard mobile app for SAP Business ByDesign.

Solution Scope

Once we have downloaded the rates, we can upload them into SAP Business ByDesign. If you have corporate rates and you’re not subject to GSA rates, you can use this functionality to import and publish your own rates that would then override SAP. These are destination specific and seasonal specific, so they are different rates based on different times/locations in the year.

 Key Advantages:

  1. Allows for accurate tracking and calculations based on per diem government rates
  2. Mass data maintenance can be utilized as part of this functionality

Phoenix Business Consulting has created the Integration with GSA for CONUS Per Diem Rates in SAP Business ByDesign as a cost-effective solution to achieve the process shown above.
