A Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) employee appealed his denied claim for hazardous duty pay, contending that a safety survey supported his allegations about the unsafe conditions of the construction area he was required to monitor. GAO held that CIA reasonably determined that the claimant's exposure to working conditions typical of construction sites did not warrant hazardous duty pay. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
