Attention Government Employees

As part of the 2015 DoD Maintenance Symposium, continental breakfast is provided on December 7 and dinner is provided on December 8. DoD regulations dictate that you must annotate these meals (i.e. exclude or "indicate as provided" from your overall travel/per diem claim amount) when filing your travel voucher. Because these meals are being provided, they cannot be reimbursed to the attendees, regardless of the attendee's participation in either of the meals.
