The GSA said the agency, under the direction of acting Administrator Dan Tangherlini, has already begun “conducting an extensive review of our agency’s operations, which includes our travel policy.”
“Our agency remains committed to eliminating any excessive spending and promoting government efficiency,” the statement also reads.
The purported spending and a letter from GOP Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, requesting more information was reported first by The Washington Post.
