Method of Computing in which the per diem allowance is broken out into two separate amounts:
- meals and incidental expenses (M&IE.)
Under the lodgings-plus method, the traveler is allowed:
- actual expenses for lodging, not to exceed the prescribed amount; and
- three-fourths of the M&IE rate for the first and last days of travel and 100% of the
M&IE rate for each whole day of travel.
