Deficient Management Practices at the Federal Labor Relations Authority
PLRD-83-24: Published: Feb 2, 1983. Publicly Released: Feb 7, 1983.
- Full Report:
In response to a congressional request, GAO reviewed furniture procurement practices at the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA). Specifically at issue was how a newly created agency, FLRA, could spend over $150,000 to furnish four offices with unusually expensive office furniture believed to have been unauthorized and in contravention of General Services Administration (GSA) regulations.
GAO found that FLRA: (1) violated the Federal Property Management Regulations when purchasing office furniture and furnishings outside of the GSA central supply system; (2) ignored the President's moratorium on furniture procurement; (3) violated the Antideficiency Act; and (4) apparently made improper salary payments to an FLRA official.
