Xxxxxxxxxx filed an application with the Board for Correction dated xxx 1984, requesting reimbursement of travel expenses from her home to Xxxxxxxxxx. The applicant responded to the request of an NIH official that she attend an orientation session for students in the Commissioned Officer Student Training and Extern Program in which she was enrolled. Xxxxxxxxxx traveled to Xxxxxxx without orders, not knowing that such orders were required before reporting to a duty station.
The merits of Xxxxxxxxxx request were evaluated on the basis of the report submitted by CPOD which did not express an objection to reimbursing the applicant for the expenses she incurred.
After consideration of all information provided, the Board for Correction recommends that Xxxxxxxxxx request be approved reimbursing her for the travel expenses she incurred. The Board members were aware that the applicant may have traveled by automobile with another student (xxxxx) who attended the same orientation session. If so, the reimbursement to this applicant should divide the expenses incurred jointly by these two students.

Further, it is certified that all applicable statutes, regulations and policies were considered by the Board in arriving at its recommendation.
