Can a time-off award be transferred if the employee leaves one agency and accepts a position with another agency?

If an employee transfers from one agency to another, the gaining agency is not obligated to "honor" the time-off award. Therefore, any unused time-off awards are not transferable, unless a special arrangement is made with the receiving agency to honor the time-off award granted by the employee's former agency. Also, the losing agency may not convert the time off to cash and give that cash to the employee.  Unlike other forms of pay for time not worked (e.g., annual and sick leave), employees are not entitled to a time-off award.
