A Certifying Officer of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, requested an advance decision regarding an employee's claim for reimbursement for a househunting trip made prior to the date his transfer was authorized. Reimbursement may be made if the absence of prior authorization was due to an administrative error or if the trip was based upon informal approval by an authorized official.
