TO MISS ROSE M. SPERLING:

YOUR LETTER OF MAY 14, 1969, REQUESTS A DECISION WHETHER A RECLAIM VOUCHER MAY BE CERTIFIED IN THE AMOUNT OF $152.73 FOR MR. BERT M. WALTER FOR A SHIPMENT OF HOUSEHOLD GOODS ARISING OUT OF A CHANGE OF DUTY STATION FROM SAN FRANCISCO TO LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA.

THE SHIPMENT IN QUESTION CONSISTS OF A MOVEMENT OF HOUSEHOLD GOODS FROM NEW YORK TO BURBANK, CALIFORNIA, MADE BY MRS. J. A. STOLDT WHICH YOU SUSPENDED IN THE ABSENCE OF EVIDENCE THAT THE GOODS SHIPPED WERE THE PROPERTY OF MR. WALTER. THIS WAS IN ADDITION TO A MOVEMENT OF 1,340 POUNDS OF EFFECTS FROM SAN FRANCISCO TO BURBANK WHICH WAS ALLOWED. INCLUDED IN THE SUSPENSION WERE AMOUNTS FOR EXTRA PICK-UP SERVICES (NOT RECLAIMED) AND ELEVATOR CHARGES IN NEW YORK.

MR. WALTER HAS SUBMITTED A STATEMENT TO THE EFFECT THAT THE HOUSEHOLD GOODS IN NEW YORK WERE IN THE POSSESSION OF HIS SISTER, MRS. MARY WALTER STOLDT (MRS. J. A. STOLDT, WIDOW). MRS. STOLDT ARRANGED FOR THE SHIPMENT AND THE INVOICE IN ERROR SHOWED HER AS THE RECEIVER IN THE CARE OF MR. BERT WALTER.

SECTION 6.3 OF BUREAU OF THE BUDGET CIRCULAR A-56 PROVIDES FOR PAYMENT OF TRANSPORTATION OF HOUSEHOLD GOODS WHETHER THE SHIPMENT ORIGINATES AT THE EMPLOYEE'S LAST OFFICIAL STATION OR PLACE OF ACTUAL RESIDENCE OR SOME OTHER POINT, OR IF PART OF THE SHIPMENT ORIGINATES AT THE LAST OFFICIAL STATION AND THE REMAINDER AT ONE OR MORE OTHER POINTS. SIMILAR PROVISIONS ARE MADE FOR POINTS OF DESTINATION. THE TOTAL AMOUNT THAT MAY BE PAID, HOWEVER, MAY NOT EXCEED THE COST OF TRANSPORTING THE PROPERTY IN ONE LOT BY THE EMPLOYEE FROM THE LAST OFFICIAL STATION TO THE NEW OFFICIAL STATION.

IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE FOREGOING THE VOUCHER, WHICH IS RETURNED HEREWITH, MAY BE CERTIFIED FOR PAYMENT ONLY IN THE AMOUNT FOR A ONE-LOT SHIPMENT FROM SAN FRANCISCO TO BURBANK, CALIFORNIA. WE NOT THAT THERE WAS NO ELEVATOR SERVICE CHARGE MADE IN CONNECTION WITH THE SAN FRANCISCO TO BURBANK SHIPMENT. ACCORDINGLY, THE $7.10 CLAIMED FOR ELEVATOR SERVICE IN CONNECTION WITH THE SHIPMENT FROM NEW YORK IS FOR DISALLOWANCE.
