GAO was requested to review the decision to relocate the Social Security Administration District Office in Galesburg, Illinois.

Concern was expressed over the decision to move the office to a new building. It was contended that most district office clients and employees opposed the move primarily because of the lack of good and free parking at the new location. In addition, it was alleged that the rent was equivalent at both locations. GAO found that the General Services Administration made the appropriate decision in awarding the lease for the new building. Apart from satisfying a legal requirement to give preference to leasing space in buildings of historical significance, the offer of space in the new building was the more economical offer. Parking at the new building, although less convenient, is available nearby and is adequate in terms of the stated requirements in the solicitation.
