The Army requested a decision as to whether it should pay two employees hazardous pay differentials for various periods of temporary duty they performed between 1975 and 1982. GAO held that: (1) it was statutorily barred from considering claims received more than 6 years after they accrued; and (2) the Army's decision to pay hazardous duty differential claims was not arbitrary and capricious or erroneous since there was evidence that the employees actually performed the duty. Accordingly, the Army should pay the employees hazardous duty pay differentials for their timely claims only.
