- Full Report:
The International Boundary and Water Commission requested a decision on whether employees could use free companion tickets for personal use. GAO held that: (1) the employees could not use the companion tickets for personal use, since they are the Commission's property and could only be used in accordance with General Service Administration (GSA) regulations; and (2) GSA could change its regulations to allow employees to use such tickets for personal use where an appropriate agency official has determined that the agency is unable to use them for official travel and no additional cost would be incurred.
