The Army requested a decision regarding a temporary employee's entitlement to a lump-sum payment for her annual leave balance. The claimant was a Veterans Administration employee who effectively transferred to the Army with a large restored annual leave account. GAO held that the Army was liable for the lump-sum leave payment, since her entitlement to the payment accrued when she separated from the Army. Accordingly, the claim was allowed.
