Review of Alleged Mismanagement of the Denver Regional Litigation Center of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
FGMSD-77-64: Published: Oct 14, 1977. Publicly Released: Oct 14, 1977.
- Full Report:
A review was conducted of alleged mismanagement of employment, travel, and procurement activities in the Denver Regional Litigation Center of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
One employee was conducting private business on Government time. One of the attorneys handled private cases during normal duty hours without taking annual leave or leave without pay, and the Commission had already taken action to charge annual leave for time spent on the private cases. Although the Center had no records showing the hours the attorney spent on private cases, it probably could be determined by the attorney's personal records and court records. The Center's travel records did not support an assertion that travel funds were being misused by the Center's manager and his deputy. An allegation that the Center was not purchasing office supplies and equipment needed to carry out litigation responsibility was not supportable.
