A Federal employee requested reconsideration of a settlement which disallowed his claim for reimbursement of travel and per diem expenses incurred by his wife in locating a residence at his new duty station while he was on temporary duty at that location. The expenses may not be reimbursed as a househunting expense in the absence of advance authorization. Subsequent authorization for the househunting trip given on the basis of an after-the-fact determination that authorization of such expenses would have resulted in reduced costs to the Government furnished no basis for payment.
