Approved For Release 200 79-0049 d 036023- t I rL ~ ii DDA 76-2677 OGC HAS REVIEWED. 2 8 MAY 1976 European Division FROM John F. Blake Deputy Director for Administration 25X1A SUBJECT : Appeal of Denied Claim REFERENCE : Memo for DDA.from C/SS/EUR, Dated 20 May 1976, Same Subject 1. Subject's appeal of a denied claim relating to the sale of his POV has been carefully reviewed. While sympa- thetic to the circumstances which find Mr. losing 25X1A $1,050 as a result of a bad check from the buyer of his vehicle, we regret there is no basis for approving his appeal. 2. It is our contention.t.hat the cause of the loss of money can only be interpreted as a personal problem for which the Agency cannot be liable. There is nothing in the attached traffic nor in the appeal of the denied claim that would cause this office to disagree with the position taken by 25X1A the OGC representative in the Office of Logistics. 3. Note has been taken of the comment in 25X1A that "surprisingly little action was taken by to 25X1A recoup the sale money, particularly while the guilty party was still a member of the Marine Corps and stationed at Quantico, close to the Headquarters area." We would take.issue with that statement based on the fact that the sale of Subject's vehicle was a private matter and not one in which the Agency would be compelled to intercede. 25X1A 4. While it is acknowledged that the sale of his POV was caused by his new post's denying the import of his POV, it is worth emphasizing that prudent safeguards could have been taken by. lr,~r ,o. . e }purl,. tba th.q chc)c paid him for the POV was 4, 4 by s ff c~ nl .funds, e.,,, a:c,o.rtified;q cashier's 11 check. ,.
