The General Services Administration has canceled its 2013 GSA Training and Expo, which was slated for May in Orlando. According to a statement from the GSA, "In the current fiscal climate, agencies and businesses alike have been forced to make tough spending cuts. After carefully reviewing the projected spending and attendance for this year‚Äôs conference, GSA is suspending Expo for 2013 in an effort to use our resources responsibly." The agency has been under scrutiny since last year's revelations that it had flown 300 people to the M Resort Spa Casino in Las Vegas for its Western Regions Conference in 2010 for a total cost of more than $822,000; the GSA's chief at the time, Martha N. Johnson, resigned last April.
