The Administrative Officer of the General Services Administration (GSA) requested GAO's opinion as to whether the proposal of the GSA to institue an employee parking plan in the GAO building through a contract with GSI is legally authorized.

GAO found that GSA is authorized under its general authority for buildings' management to enter into such an arrangement with GSI on the basis that it is for the convenience and benefit of the employees of the building as a whole. Further, GAO found no legal objection to a charge to the employees for the use of parking facilities since the charge would not be for a right which an employee has by virtue of his employment.
