The following paragraph is from the US Department of Defense regarding changes to Joint Federal Travel Regulations and advance payment of discounted conference or training registration fees:

VOLUME 2
JOINT TRAVEL REGULATIONS
CHANGE 490
Alexandria, VA
1 August 2006

Effective 30 May 2006
*H. Advance Payment of Discounted Conference or Training Registration Fee (FTR §301-74.25)
1. General.  It is a general practice for conference planners to offer discounted “early bird” registration fees, which are available in the months prior to the beginning of the conference.  To take advantage of such specials, travelers should be given oral or written authorization to register early, charge the registration fee to their IBA, and claim reimbursement for the discounted registration fee as soon as a written authorization to attend the conference has been generated.  When the authorization to register early is oral, the written authorization must reference the oral authorization for the early registration.
2. Traveler is Unable to Attend an Event for which Reimbursement Was Made in Accordance with Par. C4955-H1 (FTR §301-74.26) In all cases in which a traveler is unable to attend an event for which a discounted registration fee was paid and reimbursed in advance of the event, the traveler must seek a refund of the registration fee and repay the advance with any refund received.  If no refund is made, the DOD component must absorb the advanced payment as a preparatory travel expense if the traveler’s failure to attend the event was caused either by the DOD component’s decision or for reasons beyond the traveler’s control that are acceptable to the DOD component concerned, e.g., unforeseen illness or emergency.   If no refund is made, and the traveler’s failure to attend the scheduled event is due to reasons deemed un-excusable by the DOD component, the traveler must repay the amount advanced.
