Effective February 15, 2009, unless otherwise noted, allowances and/or post differential rates are revised as shown.  These changes are issued under TL:SR-701. 

 

Please inform local offices of all U.S. government agencies at the posts listed in this cable.

 

Important: Read this entire message as posts may be listed more than once.  Changes are listed by allowance or differential rather than by post.

 

Taiwan has been included, when applicable, under arrangement with the American Institute in Taiwan.

 

The changes in the Living Quarters Allowance rates for Grafenwoehr, Germany, and Adana, Turkey, are based on living quarters expenditure information submitted by the Department of the Army and Department of Defense Education Activity, respectively. 

 

The Post Allowance changes for Haiti are based on a Retail Price Survey submitted by Port-au-Prince.  All other Post Allowance changes are based on currency exchange rate information reported to the Office of Allowances as of the first Thursday of Pay Period 3 (February 5, 2009).

 

The Education “At-Post” Allowance rate changes are based on new information supplied by posts for the current school year.  The Away-from-Post rate changes are based on changes in the availability of adequate educational programs.

 

At the request of the Department of the Army, effective February 15, 2009, with TL:SR 701, a new listing is established for Vilseck, Germany, as outlined below.  In line with DOD's joint listing for Grafenwoehr and Vilseck, the allowance rates for the two locations are linked with Grafenwoehr having primary responsibility for coordinating submission of required allowance reports for both locations.
