Temporary Lodging Expense (TLE)you are reimbursed up to ten days of lodging expenses before/after your PCS travel when PCSing to a CONUS location.  If you are departing the NCR to an OCONUS PDS, you are limited to five days TLE and you will receive Temporary Lodging Allowance (TLA) when you arrive overseas. TLE must be taken in the vicinity of your old PDS or new PDS and is not reimbursed for any travel day as you are reimbursed a flat rate per diem.

See chart below to determine the daily per diem and lodging ceiling. Take the Max lodging rate times the percentage applicable.

Example:
Max Lodging Rate (See per diem rate query) $241 (172/69) from 1 Jul 17 - 31 Aug 17, for the member only.
Computation:

     $172 x 65% = $111.80 would be the maximum lodging reimbursement per night. If your lodging was less than this, you would be paid the lesser amount.
     $69 x 65% = $44.85 would be paid in addition to the lodging amount for Meals and Incidental Expenses (M&IE).

    Total Reimbursement per night: $111.80 + $44.85 = $156.65

See below for additional rates.

- If you are assigned to a designated location (e.g. Chantilly, VA or Pentagon) you will not be required to have a non-availability letter.  If you are assigned to a base (e.g. JB Anacostia-Bolling or JB Andrews) you are required to stay on base and will be limited to the on-base rate if you lodge elsewhere without a non-availability letter.

- BAH Rates (Utilize JB Andrews zip code 20762/Pentagon zip code 20032)

Temporary Quarters Subsistence Expense (TQSE) – TQSE is authorized in Block 14 of your orders as either Fixed or Actual Expense.  If you are authorized Actual, it will state the number of days you are authorized reimbursement for lodging.  TQSE can be utilized at the old location prior to departure and/or at the new duty station upon arrival while the employee is looking for a permanent residence.  Actual must run consecutively once started and can only be stopped by official travel such as PCS or TDY.  If you take leave not in the local area, those days will deduct from your total authorized days.

*NOTE: If a HHT is taken, only 30 days of TQSE can be paid without any adjustments or reductions.  If you claim 31 days or more of TQSE Actual Expense, HHT days must be subtracted from your TQSE claim.  The number of days of HHT utilized is subtracted from the first 30-day period of TQSE (AE) only if more than 30 days of TQSE AE are reimbursed.  HHT will not be subtracted from Lump Sum TQSE since only 30 days can be authorized.
