The Department of Energy (DOE) requested a decision concerning a transferred employee's claim for reimbursement for temporary quarters expenses. The claimant resided in a leased apartment for almost 3 years, but stated that he intended to build a permanent residence when DOE finalized facility relocation. GAO held that the claimant was not entitled to reimbursement for temporary quarters expenses, since his assertion of his temporary residence was too vague and indefinite to qualify as temporary quarters. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
