Sawyer ALr Force Base, MLchlgan, for the perxod October 1, 1969, through June 30, 1970. In your letter, you concurred that attentlon'to those items of error reported u1 our letter was necessary and stated the correctxve action taken at base level. You also requested relief from the four travel voucher per diem errors reported in our letter on the basis of late receipt of change 209 dated June 1, 1970, to volume 1 of the Joint Travel Regulations. We agree that delayed receipt of changes can lead to the computa- tion of payments under superseded regulations, However, the Accounting and Finance Tech Digest dated May 1, 1970, discussed the mpendmng change (No. 209) and further reported that an advance notice (Joint Deterrmnatlon No. lo-70 dated March 16, 1970) of that change, to become effective on June 1, 1970, was distributed on April 13, 1970. There- fore, since It appears advance notice of the change was timely dlstrib- uted, we have not removed these errors from our record of audit. We have, however, noted our records to show that collection action has been taken. We appreciate the interest displayed u1 our report of audit, Slftcerely ,r yours, S. D. McElyea Regional Manager cc.
