Q. What is the difference between the SPU and IRS
per diem rates?
A. The amount of money you would receive and the
amount of time it takes to fill out the Request for Reimbursement.
The SPU per diem rate of $30 per day is the lowest of the IRS rates
but can be used without taking the time to look up the exact location
and rate allowed by the IRS. It takes less time and it may be the
lesser money choice. The IRS per diem is determined by city and
state and may go as high as $50 per day. This takes more work and
it may be the greater money option.
