If you collaborate on projects in federally owned or leased space, use the project management software called Kahua to store and share project information and track the project progress. Usage is required for all contractors and GSA employees, and although not required for our federal agency customers, we encourage you to use it. Having all stakeholders use the same project management tool for design, construction, and leasing projects helps to improve the project delivery practices, standardize operating procedures, and ensure security and privacy.

Project managers and other team members use the tool to exchange information as they collaborate on various activities throughout the project life cycle. Examples of activities done in Kahua are: project agreements, requests for information, project schedules, design reviews, and punch lists.

Contractors, please follow up with your designated GSA point of contact for specific Kahua usage requirements. Prospective contractors, contact the POC identified in the solicitation.

To get started in Kahua, you will need a Kahua account and instruction on how to use the tool.

Kahua updates regularly with core product releases and GSA configurations of the tool.  Information on core product releases can be found on Kahua’s Support site. For information on how the March 2024 Release impacts GSA’s version of Kahua, please review the GSA Kahua Release 2024.1 [PDF – 4 MB] document.

To ask questions about accessing or using Kahua or to provide feedback on the tool:

Rates for Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. Territories and Possessions are set by the Department of Defense.

Traveler reimbursement is based on the location of the work activities and not the accommodations,
unless lodging is not available at the work activity, then the agency may authorize the rate where
lodging is obtained.

Unless otherwise specified, the per diem locality is defined as “all locations within, or entirely
surrounded by, the corporate limits of the key city, including independent entities located within
those boundaries.”

Per diem localities with county definitions shall include”all locations within, or entirely
surrounded by, the corporate limits of the key city as well as the boundaries of the listed counties,
including independent entities located within the boundaries of the key city and the listed counties
(unless otherwise listed separately).”

When a military installation or Government – related facility(whether or not specifically named) is
located partially within more than one city or county boundary, the applicable per diem rate for the
entire installation or facility is the higher of the rates which apply to the cities and / or counties,
even though part(s) of such activities may be located outside the defined per diem locality.
