An official at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) requested a decision on whether an imprest fund cashier should be reimbursed for an improper travel advance paid from his imprest fund. GAO held that the cashier could not be reimbursed for the travel advance, since the advance was made contrary to EEOC procedures governing expense payments to private parties traveling on government business.
