DOS – DIRECT BILL LODGING PROGRAM:
OAKWOOD, NATIONAL CORPORATE APARTMENTS (NCA), AND BASIC OVERNIGHT QUARTERS (BOQ)

hrpcslodging@state.gov
www.facebook.com/HREXPCSLodgingProgram

This program applies only to Department of State employees eligible for Temporary Duty (TDY) status during training.  As of September 2013, the program expanded to three vendors: Oakwood Worldwide, National Corporate Housing (NCH), and Basic Overnight Quarters (BOQ) offering additional housing options. These vendors send lodging bills directly to the State Department and they do not use the sliding per diem scale. This is especially helpful if your temporary duty (TDY) is lengthy, increasing the likelihood that you will incur out-of-pocket expenses. You must book with the DOS PCS Lodging Program from the beginning of your TDY to take advantage of this program.

Note regarding lodging per diem: If you chose not to participate in the Direct Bill Lodging Program, the sliding per diem scale will apply to all other housing options. For further information regarding short-term housing, please contact OBC at FSIOBCInfoCenter@state.gov.

The options involved in the Department of State's housing program are described below.  If you require further clarification on this program, you may contact the Department of State directly at hrpcslodging@state.gov.

 NOTES FOR EVACUEES REGARDING SHORT-TERM HOUSING

Because evacuations begin and terminate suddenly, it is often more difficult to find appropriate housing at the last minute with a company that will also allow you to end your stay with a three day notice. Many of the companies listed on this page are familiar with the special timelines and per diem issues associated with evacuation and will work with evacuees.

Note: It is also useful to understand how much per diem you are working with on a daily/monthly basis because the evacuation Subsistence Expense Allowance (SEA) per diem is based on the current rate set by GSA, which varies by month. The Office of Allowances site has information regarding allowances during evacuation (scroll down to section 600).

INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE AND ADVANCED PLACEMENT HIGH SCHOOL CONSIDERATIONS DURING EVACUATION

It is crucial for parents of teens in high school who have been enrolled in an International Baccalaureate (IB) or Advanced Placement (AP) Program to continue in a similar program during the period of evacuation at the safe haven location. For each Washington Metro Area short-term housing facility listed, the high school is tagged as either IB or AP. We encourage parents to visit the school’s website to determine if the same IB or AP classes that your child has been studying are offered at these schools. Some useful links to get you started are:

For more information, contact the Family Liaison Office (FLO) Education and Youth program at FLOAskEducation@state.gov.
