Managing Installation Name Changes in DTS

Use the former names until September 30, 2023 and start using the new names on October 1, 2023.
Nine Army installations are undergoing name changes through the end of 2023. Eight installation names have been officially changed, and the one remaining name change is scheduled before the end of the calendar year.

Regardless of the actual effective date of the new Army installation name, in the Defense Travel System (DTS) the new per diem location name changes will be effective as of October 1, 2023. The old base per diem location names will expire on September 30, 2023.

For those installations with names that officially change after October 1, the per diem location in DTS will still change on October 1, so the new name must still be selected.

Travel documents with trip dates of October 1, 2023 or later that use an old Army installation name as per diem locations must be updated to reflect the new Army installation name beginning October 1, 2023. The new per diem location names can only be added on or after October 1, 2023.

  • Trips beginning prior to October 1, 2023 that continue into October 2023: A second per diem location must be added to the itinerary using the new Army installation name for the travel dates of October 1, 2023 forward.
  • Trips created prior to October 1, 2023 with travel dates beginning on or after October 1, 2023: Must be updated after the October 1, 2023 effective date to reflect the new per diem location Army installation name.

To update the per diem location travelers can amend their Authorization to change the per diem location before or during travel or update the per diem location upon return from TDY when the Voucher is created.

  • Trips created prior to October 1, 2023 that end by September 30, 2023 do not need to be updated.

Failure to update the Army installation per diem location for trips that occur on or after October 1, 2023 may result in DTS updating the per diem amount to $0. Per Diem location changes may also affect ILP rates, adjust other lodging rates, and add pre-audits. Review your document after making the per diem location change and contact your local Defense Travel Administrator if further assistance is necessary.
