The last week has been a blur for everyone tuned into the fiscal cliff drama. The marathon legislative sessions on Capitol Hill between Christmas and New Year’s Day produced lots of federal compensation news but because of the evolving nature of the debate, it was tough to keep track of what actually squeaked through.

Here’s a recap of what happened this past week regarding some federal pay and benefits:

Travel Advisory

The General Services Administration last week announced the creation of a governmentwide travel advisory committee, which will review existing federal travel policies and processes, “beginning with the methodology by which annual adjustments are made to the federal per diem rate,” according to a GSA press release. GSA is accepting applications for committee members, who will include representatives from the travel industry as well as local and state governments.
