An individual requested assistance with the issue of entitlement to biennial travel and home leave, and more specifically the determination of the individual's place of "actual residence" for travel at Government expense for home leave purpose under the provisions of section 5728(a) of title 5, United States Code.

GAO determined that without commenting on the merits of the individual's concerns or specifically recommending a course of action on the claim, GAO believed it would be necessary - prior to any final adjudication by GAO - for the individual to request reconsideration of the individual's residence determination by the individual's administrative agency.
