The Army requested a decision regarding an employee's entitlement to reimbursement for subsistence expenses when his family chose to occupy quarters elsewhere. GAO held that the: (1) claimant's spouse did not qualify as a member of the immediate family; (2) Army should treat the claimant as a single individual; and (3) claimant was entitled to reimbursement for his own subsistence expenses, since his dependents' situation was not related to his transfer. Accordingly, the claim was partially allowed.
