Matter of: Debra Dreisbach File: B-261141 Date: November 9, 1995
B-261141, Nov 9, 1995
Dreisbach was returning from a temporary duty assignment in New Jersey to her official duty station in Hyattsville. When the General Services Administration (GSA) vehicle to which she was assigned broke down outside of Philadelphia. Which advised her to have the car towed to Pacifico Ford in Philadelphia for repair. Dreisbach was required to return the GSA vehicle to the King of Prussia office. The government is self-insured. Which are discussed below. The agency is aware of this prohibition. The agency notes first the insurance was not purchased for a government-rented vehicle. Dreisbach could have arranged to have the agency rent the vehicle under the government's contract. This would have cost the agency more than simply paying separately for the insurance for the car rented by Pacifico Ford.
