This decision is in response to a question of the propriety of the expenditures of appropriated funds by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to lease parking spaces for private automobiles of Government employees. A decision was requested on the following questions: (1) Are the fees received from employees parking on the Government-leased lots received "for the use of the United States" and required to be deposited into the Treasury of the United States as miscellaneous receipts? (2) If the answer to the first question is affirmative, does the fact that the Employees' Welfare Association has disposed of such funds in the form of free parking for the employees have any bearing on the case? (3) If the answer to the second question is negative, should we recommend that such funds be recovered for deposit into the Treasury?
