Using the Per Diem Calculator for Travel

When using the per diem calculator for travel, please do not check the “round up” box on the form. VWCC uses the actual per diem, not a “rounded up per diem” for purpose of completing the travel voucher form.

The travel per diem form is available at the link below. The “round up” box is located immediately below the “Where?” field on the form. Please just leave the box un-checked when using the form.
