B-252551: May 28, 1993
- Full Report:
The Department of Defense (DOD) requested a decision on whether it could expend appropriated funds for travel and lodging costs of public school recruiters attending job fairs for teachers at DOD Dependent Schools. GAO held that if DOD determined that the payments were necessary to accomplish the purpose of the appropriation and provided a direct benefit to the government, the payment of travel expenses was appropriate.
