AFMD-82-80: Published: Jun 7, 1982. Publicly Released: Jun 7, 1982.
- Full Report:
GAO was requested to verify the cash accountability at the House Finance Office.
GAO found the net overage of about $1,460 has resulted from various factors. First, over the years several advances to the House Restaurant Revolving Fund amounting to $2,275 were erroneously charged against the Revolving Fund account. A partial adjustment of $425 was made in March 1982 leaving a net adjustment, to be made on March 31, 1982, of $1,850. The verification also disclosed that one committee had $50 more than recorded by the Finance Office, and two committees and one office had a total of $125 less than recorded by the Finance Office. In addition, GAO was unable to locate advances totaling $450 which had been made to five committees no longer in existence. The remaining overage of $33 represented funds on hand at the Finance Office, but not recorded as an advance to that Office.
