GAO was asked to determine whether an individual be may be relieved from liability for a stolen travel advance in the amount of $716. GAO agreed with the Department of the Interior that the individual is liable for the loss of the travel advance. The statutes authorizing relief of accountable officers, 31 U.S.C. 3527, 3528 (1988), do not apply to this situation.
