    The proper use of the Term "Per Diem"

    Is this sentence using "per diem" in the correct fashion.

    The cost for the day program was changed slighly as a result of the increase to the per diem costs of K & K day programing to $90 per day (from $80)

    'per diem' already means 'per day'. The use of 'per diem costs' is correct, but the "per day" at the end of the sentence is redundant.
    per diem costs = daily costs = costs per day
