A request was made concerning the entitlement of an officer to a lump sum leave payment upon retirement from the Foreign Service and while serving as ambassador, a position exempt from annual leave. Statutes and State Department regulations preclude such payment until the exempt officer is separated from Federal service or transfers to specified positions. (RS)
