Per diem rates

Note: per diem rates are established by the US government. They are intended for use by federal employees. However, the IRS allows their use for meals for per diems (no receipts required and still have a qualified plan under IRS rules). Additionally, the IRS requires meals be pro-rated for day of departure and return. Rice uses these meal per diem rates for travel charged to a research grant.
