The Office of the Comptroller, Defense Supply Agency, requested a decision on an employee claim. The employee, reduced in grade upon acceptance of new position, requested salary retention. Since the reduction in grade was the result of an employee development program and not considered to be at the employee's request, salary retention was allowed.
