GSA parts ways with host of $823K Vegas conference

WASHINGTON,DC - The General Services Administration executive who was responsible for an $823,000 conference in Las Vegas is no longer with the agency.

GSA spokesman Adam Elkington's statement late Thursday did not make clear whether Jeffrey Neely was fired or resigned from the agency that is in charge of federal buildings and supplies.

In April Neely had been placed on administrative leave from his job as buildings commissioner for the Pacific Rim region. The agency inspector general's report on waste and abuse at the Las Vegas conference in 2010 sparked hearings by several congressional committees and left lawmakers vowing to clean up the agency.

The scandal led to the resignation of GSA Administrator Martha Johnson, the firing of two top aides and the placing of nine others on administrative leave.
