TO MR. WILLIAM A. DI PIPPO:

YOUR LETTER OF SEPTEMBER 19, 1960, TO THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, CONCERNING YOUR CLAIM FOR AN ADDITIONAL LUMP SUM PAYMENT BELIEVED TO BE DUE FOR 32 HOURS ACCRUED ANNUAL LEAVE UNUSED BY YOU AT THE TIME OF YOUR RESIGNATION FROM THE GENERAL SERVICES ADMINISTRATION, WAS REFERRED HERE FOR OUR CONSIDERATION. THAT CLAIM WAS DISALLOWED BY OUR OFFICE SETTLEMENT OF JUNE 29, 1960.

SINCE THE FACTS CONCERNING YOUR CLAIM AND THE REASONS FOR ITS DISALLOWANCE ARE SET FORTH IN OUR SETTLEMENT, THERE IS NO NEED TO REPEAT THEM HERE. YOUR LETTER DOES NOT BRING TO THE RECORD ANY PERTINENT INFORMATION WHICH WAS NOT AVAILABLE AND CONSIDERED WHEN YOUR CLAIM WAS DISALLOWED. AS YOU WERE TOLD IN OUR LETTER OF JULY 26, 1960, TO YOU, THE 32 HOURS IN QUESTION COULD NOT BRING UNDER THE LAW BE INCLUDED IN YOUR LUMP SUM LEAVE PAYMENT WHEN YOU WERE SEPARATED FROM THE SERVICE. SINCE YOU DID NOT TAKE THAT LEAVE (32 HOURS) PRIOR TO THE TIME YOU SEPARATED, AND SINCE IT COULD NOT BE INCLUDED IN THE LUMP SUM PAYMENT, THE 32 HOURS ACCRUED LEAVE WAS FORFEITED UPON YOUR SEPARATION.

WE FIND NO PROPER BASIS FOR ANY ADDITIONAL PAYMENT AS CLAIMED BY YOU; THEREFORE, OUR SETTLEMENT OF JUNE 29, 1960, WAS CORRECT AND UPON REVIEW IT MUST BE AND IS SUSTAINED.
