GAO examined the accounts and records of the Works Progress Administration in Louisville, Kentucky.

GAO found that an official of the agency accepted donations from the city of Louisville to help defray the costs of rent with the balance being used for other agency purposes. GAO stated that there was no lawful authority for the acceptance on behalf of the United States of donations or contributions of cash to be used to supplement the amount duly allotted for administrative purposes. Accordingly, GAO recommended that the district director be instructed to avoid accepting in his official capacity unauthorized contributions and donations on behalf of the Federal Government.
