Congressional interns often work out of storage areas or even in hallways, but the General Services Administration interns fared much better.

The agency's inspector general and a House committee learned that about 120 interns and 20 executives attended a weeklong conference for the interns in 2010 at a Palm Springs, Calif., resort.

The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee released a partial transcript of an inspector general's interview, in which an agency employee provided conference details.

The committee is one of three congressional panels that will conduct hearings next week on wasteful spending by the agency in charge of federal buildings and supplies.

The May 2010 conference was hosted by the same Western regional office that was responsible for a 2010 conference in a Las Vegas resort that cost about $823,000.
