From the Associated Press:
WASHINGTON — The nation’s space agency paid the out-of-this-world price of $66 a person a day for bagels, cookies and juice at a conference, a new report found.
The subject of the NASA conference? It was a training session for its procurement officials, the people who do the buying with taxpayer money.
During the three-day conference, the 317 attendees snacked on “light refreshments” of soda, coffee, fruit, bagels and cookies at a cost of $62,611, according to a NASA Inspector General report. That’s $66 a day per person.
That was not the only problem...
