The Federal Highway Administration requested a decision regarding an employee's claim for reimbursement for weekend travel expenses he incurred in travelling from his temporary duty station to his family residence, which was outside the commuting boundaries of his official permanent duty station. GAO held that the claimant was entitled to reimbursement for the expenses of periodic, authorized return travel to his permanent residence, not to exceed the constructive costs of travel to his official station, since the claimant was an itinerant employee who was required to perform long periods of temporary duty. Accordingly, the claim was allowed.
