A transferred employee appealed a decision disallowing his claim for reimbursement for shipment of a privately owned vehicle to his new duty station. The claim was disallowed because the agency head did not authorize such shipment as in the government's interest, and there is no evidence that the denial of reimbursement for vehicle transportation was an absence of discretionary authority.
