A former Deputy Regional Director of the War Assets Administration requested that GAO review a previous GAO settlement certificate which disallowed a claim for overtime compensation. The said disallowance was predicated upon the ground that the overtime services for which compensation was claimed were not properly authorized.

GAO determined that the Director approved his own overtime, and found no reasonable ground upon which the indebtedness could be disputed.
