The Social Security Administration (SSA) requested a decision regarding an employee's claim for expenses she incurred for servicing a clock incident to her relocation, contending that the claimant: (1) had already been reimbursed for additional miscellaneous expenses; and (2) should reimburse it for subcontractor services for disassembling the clock and preparing it for transport. GAO held that SSA: (1) properly denied the claim for additional miscellaneous expenses related to servicing and leveling the clock, since the services related more to restoring the clock than transporting it; and (2) could not collect the subcontractor costs from the claimant, since such costs were considered transportation expenses. Accordingly, the claim was allowed in part.
