The Deputy Commissioner for Management of the Office of Education, requested a decision regarding whether employees of the Office of Education could be reimbursed for subsistence expenses which they incurred at their headquarters. Office of Education employees who attend work sessions at their headquarters may not be paid subsistence or per diem since federal regulations prohibit such payments.
