[Air Force Member's Claim for Reimbursement for Transportation Costs]
B-253558: Nov 30, 1993
- Full Report:
An Air Force member appealed his denied claim for transportation costs he incurred incident to his transfer, contending that the Air Force should reimburse him, since he was given erroneous advice concerning his transportation allowances. GAO held that the Air Force should not reimburse the member, since the Air Force was not liable for the erroneous actions of its officers, agents, and employees. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
