Allegations of favoritism were raised about the Department of Labor's Office of Inspector General's (OIG) payment of relocation allowances to certain employees. GAO investigated the transfers of six OIG employees between or within its New York and New Jersey district offices from 1995 to November 2000. GAO found that decisions to grant or deny permanent change of station (PCS) and related relocation allowances were based on the needs of OIG and the availability of funds and do not appear to result from favoritism. Furthermore, the reimbursement associated with the PCS was in accordance with the Federal Travel Regulations.
