The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requested a decision regarding an employee's claim for reimbursement for travel costs she incurred pursuant to a temporary duty assignment. IRS advised that the claimant travelled indirectly to her temporary duty station. GAO held that the claimant was entitled to reimbursement for the travel costs she incurred pursuant to her official temporary duty, not to exceed the constructive cost of direct travel between her permanent and temporary duty stations. Accordingly, the claim was allowed.
