The General Accounting Office Special Task Force for Prevention of Fraud and Abuse looked into allegations of minor theft and retaliation against the employee who reported a problem. The information was provided to the agency's legal counsel for consideration in reopening the case in question. Generally, the 14 allegations to be followed up deal with alleged irregularities in contracting and procurement, time and attendance reporting, right-of-way acquisition, and personnel practices. The Atlanta Regional Office recently established an on-site audit group at the agency and agreed to follow up on all hot-line allegations received against the agency.
