A decision was requested as to whether a Federal employee was entitled to additional reimbursement for temporary storage and the cost of handling and delivery of household goods from storage more than 2 years from the date of the employee's transfer. The employee cannot be reimbursed for shipment to the new residence because it was not within the time limitation. Reimbursement for storage of household goods is not allowed beyond 60 days.
