The Army appealed the settlement authorizing reimbursement of an employee's freight transportation expenses for the shipment of his foreign-made, private automobile pursuant to his transfer back to the United States. GAO held that the employee was not entitled to reimbursement of his expenses, since the Army had not authorized the shipment. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
