Reimbursement for Costs of Attending Certain Banquets

Headnotes: 

Employees in the United States Attorneys offices may properly be reimbursed for the costs of attending retirement banquets for state law enforcement officials under appropriate circum stances. However, reimbursement for attendance at such functions should be limited to circumstances where the nature of the ceremonial event in question provides good reason to believe that the employee’s attendance advances the authorized functions or programs of the office.
