OFFICE FURNITURE BUY OVER $5000 -2

Recommended Posts

Continuing a closed thread from 2918, see where the GAO concluded that HUD had violated the Anti Deficiency Act for purchase of office furniture, furnishings  and fixtures for the office of the HUD Secretary wifthout advance notification to Congress.

Two things wrong with this Act.  One it’s obviously political.  The second is so obscure, no one knows about it, much less workers responsible for furniture procurement.  What typically happens with purchasing for a Secretary’s Office is some staffer does a requisition. A budget/controller staffer approves funds quickly knowing who it’s for.  Then a diligent purchasing agent or 1102 processes the order.  There’s no one that knowledgeable in appropriation law that Evers get close to see it.
