Within DoD, and most likely other Agencies, the Comp and Overtime Hours process needs to be tightened greatly. In the Air Force, a keen observer is likely to see many civilians talking away during duty hours with friends and planning after hours events, golfing times, fishing trips, travel plans, etc...and then, still claiming COMP or even OT hours. These hours are costing DoD and US Govt budget dollars. While the USAF Quality of Life (QOL) is nice culture, as US TAXPAYER, lots of abuse of the system can be seen easily. The guidance that is documented in OPM and DoD regulations probably needs elaboration or description of just what COMP and OT hours are really for.
