Beta! The text on the eCFR tab represents the unofficial eCFR text at ecfr.gov.
§ 303-70.600 When an employee dies while performing official travel duties directly supporting or directly relating to a contingency operation or an operation in response to an emergency declared by the President, must we provide transportation for the employee's immediate family, baggage, and household goods from the current official station to the former actual residence or an alternate destination?

Yes. However, the employee must have died as a result of disease or injury incurred while performing official duties:

(a) In an overseas location where the employee was performing such official duties;

(b) Within the area of responsibility of the Commander of the United States Central Command; and

(c) In direct support of or directly related to a military operation, including a contingency operation (as defined in 10 U.S.C. 101(a)(13)) or an operation in response to an emergency declared by the President.
