[Reimbursement of Check Cashing Costs]
B-206779(VBG): Published: Sep 29, 1982. Publicly Released: Sep 29, 1982.
- Full Report:
GAO recommended a change in the Federal Travel Regulations (FTR) concerning the reimbursement of check cashing costs incurred for cashing U.S. Government checks for travel expenses within the United States. Although these costs are not currently reimbursable under the FTR as written, GAO believes that a regulatory change of the FTR should be made to allow these expenses which employees must occasionally incur. GAO recommended that the Administrator of General Services amend the FTR to expressly allow reimbursement of the cost of cashing Government checks for travel expenses incurred for travel both within and outside of the United States.
