The Contractor shall therefore present to the Contracting Office an itinerary for each planned international trip, showing the name of the traveler, purpose of the trip, origin/destination (and intervening stops), and dates of travel, as far in advance of the proposed travel as possible, but in no event less than three weeks before travel is planned to commence. The Contracting Officer's prior written approval may be in the form of letter or telegram or similar device, or may be specifically incorporated into the schedule of the Contract. At least one week prior to commencement of approved international travel, the Contractor shall notify the cognizant Mission, with a copy to the Contracting Officer, of planned travel, identifying the travelers and the dates and times of arrival.

The Contractor shall be reimbursed for actual travel costs and travel allowances of travelers from place of residence in the United States (or other location provided) that the cost of such travel does not exceed the cost of the travel from the employee's residence in the United States) to the post of duty in the Cooperating Country and return to place of residence in the United States (or other location, provided, that the cost of such travel does not exceed the cost of travel from the post of duty in the Cooperating Country to the employee's residence) upon completion of services by the individual. Such travel costs and travel allowances shall not be reimbursed in an amount greater than economy class commercially scheduled air travel by the most expeditious route, except as otherwise provided in paragraph (g) of this section, and

unless economy air travel or economy air travel space are not available and the Contractor certifies to this in the voucher documents retained as part of its Contract records. When travel is by economy class accommodations, the Contractor will be reimbursed for the cost of transporting up to twenty-two (22) pounds of accompanied personal baggage per traveler in addition to that regularly allowed with the economy ticket provided that the total number of pounds of baggage does not exceed that reg. ularly allowed for first class travelers. If the cost of economy class accommodations plus the cost of transporting twenty-two pounds of additional accompanied personal baggage equals or exceeds the cost of first class accommodations, first class accommodations may be used. Travel allowances for travelers shall not be in excess of six dollars ($6) per day for persons eleven (11) years of age, or over, or three dollars ($3) per day for persons under eleven (11) years of age, for not more than the travel time required by scheduled economy class commercial air carrier using the most expeditious route and computed in accordance with the Standardized Regulations (Government Civilians, Foreign Areas) as from time to time amended. One (1) stopover en route for a period of not to exceed twenty-four hours is allowable when the traveler uses economy class accommodations for a trip of fourteen (14) hours or more scheduled duration. Such stopover shall not be authorized when travel is by indirect route or is delayed for the convenience of the traveler. Per diem during such stopover shall be paid in accordance with the established practice of the Contractor but not to exceed the amounts stated in the Standardized Regulations (Government Civilians, Foreign Areas), as from time to time amended.

(b) Local travel. Reimbursement for local travel shall not be in excess of the rates established by the Mission Director for the travel costs of travelers in the Cooperating Country in connection with duties directly referable to the contract. In the absence of such established rates, the Contractor shall be reimbursed for actual travel costs of travelers in the Cooperating Country, if not provided by the Cooperating Government or the Mission, in connection with duties directly referable to the contract, including travel allowances at rates not in excess of those prescribed by the Standardized Regulations (Government Civilians, Foreign Areas) as from time to time amended.

(c) Travel for consultation. The Contractor shall be reimbursed for the round trip of the Contractor's Chief of Party in the Cooperating Country or other designated Contractor employee or consultant in the Cooperating Country performing services required under this Contract, for travel from

(e) Indirect travel for personal convenience. When travel is performed by an inuirect route for the personal convenience of the traveler, the allowable costs of such travel will be computed on the basis of the cost of economy class air fare via the direct usually traveled route. If such costs include fares for air or ocean travel by foreign flag carriers, approval for indirect travel by such foreign flag carriers must be obtained from the Contracting Officer or the Mission Director before such travel is undertaken, otherwise only that portion of travel accomplished by United States-flag carriers will be reimbursable within the above limitation of allowable costs.

(f) Limitation on travel by dependents. Travel costs and allowances will be allowed only for dependents of regular employees and such costs shall be reimbursed for travel from place of abode to assigned station in the Cooperating Country and return, only if dependent remains in the country for at least nine (9) months and one-half of the required tour of duty of the regular employee responsible for such dependent, whichever is greater.

If the dependent is eligible for educational travel pursuant to the General Provision entitled “Differential and Allowances”, time spent away from post resulting from educational travel will be counted as time at post.

(g) Delays en route. The Contractor may grant to travelers under this contract reasonable delays en route, not circuitous in nature, while in travel status, caused by events beyond the control of such traveler or Contractor. It is understood that if delay is caused by physical incapacitation, personnel shall be eligible for such sick leave as is provided under paragraph (b) of the clause of this contract entitled “Leave and Holidays”.

(h) Travel by privately owned automobile. The Contractor shall be reimbursed for the cost of travel performed by a regular employee in his/her privately owned automobile at a rate not to exceed fifteen cents (15¢) per mile plus authorized per diem for the employee and for each of the authorized dependents traveling in the automobile if the automobile is being driven to or from the Cooperating Country as authorized under the contract; Provided, That the total cost of the mileage and the per diem paid to all authorized travelers shall not exceed the total constructive cost of fare and normal per diem by all authorized travellers by (1) surface common carrier or (2) less than first-class air, whichever is the lesser.

(i) Emergency and irregular travel and transportation. Actual transportation costs and travel allowances while en route, as provided in this section will also be reimbursed under the following conditions:

(1) The costs of going from post of duty in the Cooperating Country to the employee's permanent, legal place of residence at the time he or she was employed for work under this contract or other location for Contractor employees and dependents and returning to the post of duty, when the Contractor's Chief of Party makes a written determination that such travel is necessary for one of the reasons specified in paragraph (i)(1)(i) and (ii) of this clause. A copy of the written determination shall be furnished to the Contracting Officer.

(i) Need for medical care beyond that available within the area to which the employee is assigned, or serious effect on physical or mental health if residence is continued at assigned post of duty, subject in either case, to the limitations stated in the provision of this contract entitled "Physical Fitness of Employee and Dependents.” The Mission Director may authorize a medical attendant to accompany the employee at contract expense if, based on medical opinion, such an attendant is necessary.
