Government Travel Charge Card Regulation
This Departmental Regulation (DR) prescribes the policies and procedures governing the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) travel charge card program. The Government travel charge card program was developed to procure transportation services, subsistence, and other allowable travel and transportation expenses incurred during official travel. This regulation supplements 41 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Subtitle F, Parts 300 through 304 (commonly known as the Federal Travel Regulation (FTR)); both are used throughout this DR. The FTR is issued by the General Services Administration (GSA) and implements statutory requirements and Executive branch policies for travel by Federal civilian employees and others authorized to travel at government expense. Provisions included in this regulation follow applicable Federal regulations, including the FTR.
