The Authorized Certifying Officer of the Maritime Administration requested GAO's opinion as to whether it may certify for payment a voucher in the amount of $1441.48 for travel expenses of a Maritime Administration employee.

GAO found that the employee is not entitled to per diem for the period of interrupted travel due to break down and repair of his automobile, as this is a personal expense. Further, GAO found that the employee is not entitled to taxi fares, as they were not incident to his official duty. Finally, GAO found that since the employee did not have adequate documentation for excessive mileage than originally estimated, he may not be reimbursed for his mileage.
