GSA Administrator & Other Top Agency Officials Fired Amid Conference Spending Scandal
April 05, 2012

General Services Administration (GSA) Administrator Martha N. Johnson and Public Building Service Commissioner Robert A. Peck and other GSA officials were forced to relinquish their positions on April 2. The agency overhaul came hours before the release of GSA Inspector General Brian D. Miller’s report on an $823,000 training conference held at a casino just outside Las Vegas, Nev.

The report cited numerous expenses in violation of federal limits on conference spending. For more information on the details of those expenses as reported by the Washington Post, click HERE.

The Obama administration has tapped former Washington, D.C. Administrator Dan Tangherlini—currently an official at the Treasury Department—to replace Johnson.
