Federal Bureau of Indian affairs spending

The Federal Bureau of Indian Affairs has been on a little buying binge, spending more than 32 million taxpayer dollars on property, buildings and renewing leases.

Now as part of the Interior Department that might have gone unnoticed had it not been for the General Services Administration.
The GSA oversees all federal property, and discovered that BIA did not follow proper procedures in acquiring the property.
