Brief Executive Summary
Senator Tom Coburn investigated the attendance of federal employees which has starkly decreased. The findings within this report show that nearly 10,000 work years have been lost due to unexcused absences with the AWOL problem staggering, the AWOL problem has increasing been getting worse, and lastly this problem is primarily from the Department of Veteran Affairs (has millions of hours every year) and the Department of Treasury. This in turn is an ineffective use of taxpayers money, as they foot the bill for government employees who do not show up.
