[DOE Employee's Claim for TQSE at New Duty Station]
B-254216: Jan 11, 1994
- Full Report:
The Department of Energy requested a decision concerning an employee's claim for temporary quarters subsistence expenses (TQSE) while on temporary duty at another location. GAO held that the employee: (1) reasonably retained her temporary quarters while on temporary duty at another location because her son was attending school and her personal possessions were too bulky to transport and place in temporary storage; and (2) was entitled to less than the maximum allowable TQSE, since her actual expenses were less than anticipated. Accordingly, the claim was allowed.
