A federal employee requested reconsideration of the denial of his request for waiver of an erroneous payment of advanced annual leave. The employee was not entitled to have his indebtedness for the excess payments waived since he should have been aware that there was an error and he therefore had a duty to report it to the appropriate officials. The employee may elect to have the excess leave carried forward as a charge against later accruing annual leave.
