1. 5 U.S.C. s5722 and s5723, provide, under certain conditions, for travel and transportation expenses of the employee
(including new appointees or student trainees eligible for first PDS travel), appropriate allowances for the employee's
immediate family, movement and storage of household goods (HHG) and personal effects, and certain other allowances
incident to an appointment or transfer to an OCONUS location, except movement and storage of HHG is not allowed for
round-trip renewal agreement travel. Under the law, the allowances shall not be authorized unless the employee agrees in
writing to remain in the Government service for a prescribed period of time. Accordingly, to establish eligibility for the
authorized allowances, the following agreement must be executed.
2. I understand and agree that:
a. When I complete _______ months, the prescribed tour of duty, I will be eligible for return travel and transportation
allowances at Government expense for myself, my dependents, or my household effects, to my actual residence at time of
appointment stated above for purpose of separation from the service, unless separated early for reasons beyond my control
that are acceptable to the agency concerned.
b. I will remain in Government service for at least 12 months beginning with the effective date of my transfer or
appointment to my new OCONUS PDS, unless separated for reasons beyond my control that are acceptable to the agency
concerned. If I fail to remain in service the required minimum period of time, or if I am removed for cause before expiration
of the required minimum period of service, I am obligated and will, upon demand, repay to the Government a sum of money
equivalent to what the Government paid for travel and transportation and related allowances associated with the transfer of
myself and my dependents, e.g., HHG storage and shipment, CONUS temporary quarters subsistence expenses, (but not
OCONUS temporary quarters subsistence allowance), real estate and/or relocation expenses, miscellaneous expenses, and
any other related allowances incident to my transfer, from beginning point of travel to the PDS. The employing Agency may
withhold any final pay due to me to apply against or liquidate any indebtedness arising from a violation of this agreement.
3. I understand that the period of service specified above is for the sole purpose of establishing my eligibility for travel and
transportation allowances, and other related allowances which may be authorized.
