[Entitlement of Army Employee to Reimbursement for Real Estate Broker's Fee]
B-219925: Jun 10, 1986
- Full Report:
The Army requested a GAO decision on whether it could reimburse a transferred employee for the full amount of a real estate broker's commission where evidence of the standard rate in the area did not clearly support one prevailing rate. GAO held that the 7-percent broker's fee the employee paid did not exceed the usual range of rates for the area. Accordingly, the Army may reimburse the employee for the full amount of his claim.
