Board for Correction Case No. 104-89

192.00 Pay and Allowances (Includes Allotments of Pay / Allowances / Basic Pay) - Retroactive pay and allowances

Recommendation of the Board for Correction on the Request of Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, Case No. 104-89

Xxxxxxxxx submitted an application to the Board for Correction of PHS Commissioned Corps Records, dated Xxxxxx, 1989, in which she requested retroactive pay and allowances for the period Xxxxxx, 1989-Xxxxxx, 1989. This amounted to $3,028.94.

Xxxxxxxxx was employed by the Indian Health Service and assigned to the PHS Indian Health Center, Xxxxxxxxxxxx. An extension of her tour of duty beyond the original 120 days had been requested but was not processed due to an administrative error. She worked during the period Xxxxxx, 1989-Xxxxxx, 1989, but was not paid because her orders had not been issued.

Approval of Xxxxxxxxx'x request would allow her to receive pay and allowances for the period during which she actually worked. The Commissioned Corps has advised us that they have no objection to the Board taking action to correct her record to allow her to be paid. The Corps does not have the authority to issue an order entitling her to retroactive pay and allowances.

To expedite the processing of this pro forma case, we sent copies of her Case File to the Board members and asked them to review the documentation and provide a recommendation on whether her request: should be upheld or denied. Their findings and conclusions are included as Attachment 1 to this memorandum.

After consideration of all of the documentation received, the recommendation of the Board is that Xxxxxxxxx'x request be upheld. Approval of her request will require issuing a personnel order correcting her record to show that her tour of duty had been extended to include the period Xxxxxx, 1989­-Xxxxxx, 1989, during which she worked but was not paid. This will entitle her to the pay and allowances she requested.

I certify that this recommendation is the recommendation of the Board, as included in Attachment 1. Further, I certify that the documentation in Attachment 2 includes all information submitted to the Board which, in addition to applicable statutes, regulations and policies, was considered in arriving at this recommendation.

If you approve, please sign below.
