EO No. 77

Requested from DBM by C. Palabiano at 10:14 PM on Sep 06, 2022.
Purpose: For clarify of information
Date of Coverage: 09/06/2022 - 09/06/2022
Tracking no: #DBM-627877453653

Palabiano 10:14 PM, Sep 06, 2022

May I clarify the Daily Subsistence Allowance (DSA) provision of EO 77?

Section 14-a states that those who will travel abroad shall be granted the DSA based on the daily rates established by the ICSC/UNDP. Letter b indicates the particular percentages: 50% accommodations, 30% meals, and 20% incidentals.

But when you browse the rates from, they prescribe a higher percentage for accomms (e.g. 60%-79% of DSA is for lodging in USA). 

What rate should we follow for accoms/meals/incidental? The one written in section 14-b or that of the ICSC?

Thank you.
