A review was conducted of the General Services Administration's (GSA) proposal to reduce its Region III printing plant work load on an 18-month or 36-month schedule. GSA officials believed that an 18-month reduction and delivery would seriously affect the Working Capital Fund, and that this would be lessened if plant reduction took place over 36 months.

Estimated severance payments and terminal leave payments would be approximately $81,000 for an 18-month reduction. Termination payments for a 36-month reduction would be about $33,000, because attrition would reduce the number of employees to be separated. These termination costs would have effect on the Working Capital Fund which was funded with $450,000, and has current monthly balances in excess of $700,000. Region III places a 9-percent surcharge on all printing work in the plant to finance the cost of storing and distributing materials and to administrative offset and delivery costs.
