The Army requested a decision concerning an employee's claim for reimbursement for a wire fee for an electronic funds transfer after she unsuccessfully attempted to negotiate a travel advance check while on temporary duty. GAO held that the claimant was not entitled to reimbursement, since she: (1) had ample time prior to her departure to negotiate the check; and (2) did not incur the wire fee while procuring urgently needed items necessary to her official business. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
