10.2.3 NASA Center Directors, Center Human Resources Directors, and the AA, OHCM have authority to authorize travel, transportation, and relocation expenses for a new appointee to the same extent, in the same manner, and subject to the same conditions as payments of such expenses to an employee transferred in the interest of the U.S. Government.

10.2.4 New appointee travel will be authorized as follows:

a. Travel authorizing officials will determine when the travel of a new appointee is in the interest of the U.S. Government and, on the travel authorization form, document the reasons on which that decision is based.

c. When determined to be in the interest of the US Government, new appointee travel may be authorized under government-wide and CFO provisions applicable to the transfer of an employee from one permanent duty location to another.

d. The decision to authorize travel for new appointees must be communicated to all potential applicants for the position for which the new appointee is selected.
