The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (BATF) requested a decision concerning an employee's request for waiver of collection of relocation expenses BATF erroneously paid him incident to his transfer. GAO held that BATF could properly waive collection, since the erroneous payment resulted from BATF misinterpretation of the applicable regulations. Accordingly, waiver was granted, and GAO recommended that BATF repay the claimant all amounts already collected from him.
