[Federal Employees' Providing Advice and Support to Federal Credit Unions]
B-212457: Aug 23, 1984
- Full Report:
The General Services Administration requested a decision as to the amount of administrative leave that may be granted to employees for activities in support of federal credit unions and the types of support that may be provided by such employees while they are in an administrative leave status. GAO held that an agency has the discretion to grant administrative leave, although that discretion must be exercised within the bounds of the statutes, regulations, and relevant decisions. GAO also held that the amount of administrative leave granted is also a matter of administrative discretion, and an agency may establish limits as to the amount of administrative leave which may be granted for certain activities. Accordingly, agencies may grant administrative leave to employees for rendering limited services to federal credit unions.
