Transportation Security Administration's Proposed Time and Attendance System
B-291001: Dec 23, 2002
Pursuant to 31 U.S.C. 3529(a), four certifying officers at the Department of Transportation (DOT) asked us whether the method of approving an employee's time and attendance (T&A) information in the T&A system to which the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is transitioning meets the requirements of Title 6 of GAO's Policy and Procedures Manual for Guidance of Federal Agencies (Policy and Procedures Manual). The certifying officers also asked whether GAO would relieve a certifying officer pursuant to 31 U.S.C. 3528(b)(1)(A) if a certifying officer certified an improper or illegal payment in reliance on the new T&A approval system.
