Summary:

The Washington Times used FOIA to obtain information regarding dozens of travel-expenditure-related investigations at federal agencies. The investigations revealed a State Department office with an unduly high percentage of business-class flights, a National Science Foundation manager spending more than $10,000 to expand business trips, and a Treasury Department legal technician who entered travel reimbursement claims for himself - despite neither being authorized to do so, nor having undertaken any travel.
