Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO assessed the: (1) economic feasibility of constructing a federal facility in Salem, Oregon; and (2) General Services Administration's (GSA) process for making capital allocation decisions.

GAO found that GSA: (1) analyzed its space requirements in Salem in 1981 and concluded that the current low leasing costs and the declining need for space did not justify facility construction; (2) continued to experience a declining need for space in Salem from 1981 to 1988; and (3) has no current plans for facility construction in Salem and has assigned Salem a low priority for possible construction, since it allocates capital investment funds to projects which offer the highest savings for the government.
