GSA gives team 60 days to clean up the agency

Gerald Carmen, administration of the General Services Administration, assigned Howard Davia, GSA's chief auditor, and William Clinkscales, deputy director of its information security oversight office, to come up with a program with 60 days to rid the agency of corruption and waste.

Mr. Clinkscales was chief investigator during part of an investigation that led to over 200 indictments. The criminal charges stemmed from GSA employee schemes that included taking kickbacks for approving phony or inflated contracts and accepting payoffs to push goods of private contractors at self-service GSA stores.

Mr. Davia has complained publicly that GSA's management has not followed up on the recommendations of his audi tors for eliminating waste.
