The Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Federal Home Loan Bank Board requested a decision concerning the use of government vehicles for home-to-work transportation in connection with official duty. GAO noted that federal regulations: (1) prohibited the use of a government vehicle to transport a government employee between his residence and duty site; (2) allowed home-to-work travel when other available alternatives would involve additional costs or time; (3) required agencies to select the method of transportation to the government's greatest advantage and consider lost work time in that selection; and (4) prohibited home-to-work transportation solely for the employee's comfort or convenience. GAO held that agencies could authorize home-to-work transportation of government employees beginning or ending overnight official travel, but not the use of government vehicles for transportation during the day of official travel.
