FY2015 Domestic Per Diem rates are now available. Check the GSA website for the FY2015 rates. Additionally, Conference Services has developed a handy reference sheet for FY2015 LBNL Allowable Food and Lodging Costs for Commonly Used Cities in the Bay Area and DC. (Note that M&IE rates have not increased for FY2015 in the Bay Area or DC, but lodging has.)
Conference Services developed a separate, new policy for anyone who plans to attend a conference or event. In addition, Conference Services revised the existing (hosted) events policy to include the conference reporting requirements and clarify rules about hosting events and meals at the Berkeley Lab.

Conference Service’s Vision is to provide professional, strategic conference planning to further scientific discovery balancing cost-effectiveness and compliance requirements.
DOE Conference Reporting – Conference Services manages the new DOE conference reporting process required by the Department of Energy for attending and hosting conferences.
Event Management – Conference Services offers a suite of services to event hosts depending on the size and scope of the event. Required services are registration site development/management and contract negotiation and execution.
- Event Policy, Compliance and Assurance – Two policies have been developed covering attending conferences and hosting conferences. Conference Services manages compliance to these policies through the DOE reporting process and the LBL Event Approval Database.
