A Federal employee requested review of a settlement denying his claim for reimbursement of expenses incurred in settling his unexpired lease incident to a change of official duty station. The employee, who had entered into a 1-year sublease agreement for sharing an apartment with a fellow employee, was not entitled to reimbursement of the rent he paid under the agreement for the balance of the term of the lease because there was a lack of reasonable effort to relet the premises.
