Claim for Per Diem for Temporary Duty
B-188515: Aug 18, 1977
- Full Report:
A federal employee appealed the denial of his claim for additional per diem for temporary duty. The employee who was headquartered at Baltimore and assigned to temporary duty at Rockville, Maryland, had no Baltimore residence. He could be paid per diem for only 4-3/4 days per week plus mileage for constructive weekend travel pursuant to agency regulation since the agency may require employees to return on nonworkdays to headquarters where no per diem may be paid. Since the agency determined that the employee would not commute daily to Baltimore, per diem was properly authorized.
