FFR Going Down Again

#4
Is it just me or does anyone else not find it strange that the Army does not track fuel prices and adjust MMA in line with them the same way they do with the FFR and exchange rates? Or am I just being naive? :roll:

Dont use your own car for military business, insist on a pool/hire or military vehicle. If commuting get yourself a dirt cheap small car or a small motorbike.

As a consolation, when the FFR changes an LOA change is usually not far behind.
Thanks for the thought but it's no consolation to us civvies.

Had it confirmed it's going down to 1.31 on 1 Apr
Ah I see you are a civvy, and working in Germany? In which case you are living very nicely thank you and will get no sympathy on here!

Can be viewed on the intranet UKSC(G) site or via UKBCs AN 11/2008.

I am not a civvy and this appears to have been done very quietly indeed, second drop in 4 months

I've scoured the UKSC(G) intranet site, and searched for that AN - drawing a blank on both. Can you supply a link?

Mighty ,

Do a search on Defence(ive) Intranet, it's the first item that comes up. XLS spreadsheet dated 27/2?

ER and FC is the next document, same date
PTP,

I've looked at that document, and that still refers to a FFR of 1.50.

Am I being a total mong, or is my search function mugging me off!

*WARNING**WARNING*

The army should write that above everything that it claws money back from that way we can gripe about the lot!!

With tesco's charging 8p more then one tesco's store 30miles away that .1 looks mediocre.

get a flight over here and try to work out the small figures. I did ask our money man and he smiled and said that he was not able to clarify why the rate is so precise!! Devious WALT
