The Department of Agriculture's National Finance Center requested a decision on whether the Farmers Home Administration (FmHA) properly denied an employee's claim for real estate purchase expenses incident to her transfer to a new duty station. GAO held that FmHA properly denied the employee's claim, since: (1) the settlement on her house occurred more than 2 years after she reported for duty at her new duty station; (2) she did not provide evidence of any extenuating circumstances that prevented her from completing the purchase of her home; and (3) her voluntary transfer to a second, nearby duty station prior to the purchase of her house nullified her entitlement for relocation expenses that accrued from her original transfer. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
