GAO's Claims Division denied a Petty Officer waiver of indebtedness to the United States in the amount of $1,137.48, arising out of erroneous payments of basic allowance for quarters (BAQ) for the period of May 30 though December 31, 1975. The Petty Officer appealed that action in February 1978.

In decision B-191757, July 24, 1978, GAO sustained the action taken by the Claims Division in denying the waiver.
