Federal Manager's Daily Report

In fiscal 2001, 2002, and 2003, federal agencies

reimbursed the Treasury for less than one of every five


dollars owed under the Contract Disputes Act, holding

them accountable for payment in contract disputes, the

General Accounting Office has said.

It said at least 18 agencies had unpaid amounts at the

end of each fiscal year, and that while Treasury’s

Notification and Federal Employee Antidiscrimination and

Retaliation Act collection efforts are just beginning,

reimbursement rates under the act may be as low as under

CDA because neither impose reimbursement deadlines on

agencies, and Treasury has very little authority to

enforce reimbursement.

The No FEAR Act requires agencies to repay discrimination

settlements and judgments paid out of the judgment fund

on their behalf.
