The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) spent an exorbitant amount of taxpayer money on “executive furniture” for agency head Avril Haines, according to documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
Weeks after Haines was confirmed as Director of National Intelligence, her office spent $12,134 on four office chairs, according to a government procurement order obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. An ODNI employee asked in the order for “appropriate executive furniture that meets the level of the position in which they are charged with.” ODNI said it needed the chairs by April 1, 2021.
The procurement order shows that Haines’s office ordered versions of furniture company Haworth’s Zody chair, which is customizable and can sell for a wide range of prices depending on the selected configuration. According to the document, each of the chairs cost $2,759 before delivery and labor fees, which brought the total to $3,033 per chair.
