NEWNew Labor and Per Diem Rates and SAM Registration

Effectively immediately your labor rates have increased from $84.80 to $86.50. New rates are in effect for all estimates received from this date forward. Current domestic per diem and POV mileage rates can be found at http://www.gsa.gov/. Foreign rates can be found at the following website: http://aoprals.state.gov/content.asp?content_id=184&menu_id=78.

As a reminder, registration in the SAM database is completely optional. When considering whether or not to renew your information, please keep in mind if you choose not to renew your information in this database, you will not be able to do business with NIST/NVLAP via a contract. However, we do have the option to pay for services via a convenience check if the job is less than $2,500.

Please contact your NVLAP Program Manager if you have any questions or comments regarding this information.
