In one video, for instance, the GSA’s chief people officer, Anthony E. Costa, apologizes backstage to a colleague for being too busy to “friend” him on Facebook.

“It’s gotten so bad I’ve had to get some help,” Mr. Costa says, adding that he just got a clone from a government acquisition service schedule. A man wearing a beige cap looking bald — like Mr. Costa — enters the scene. Mr. Costa introduces him as “Tony Clonesta.”

“I’m tweeting to our peeps right now about smart meetings,” the clone says.

Before the gag comes to a close, this being Las Vegas, the clone breaks out in song: “My name is Tony, and I like to tweet,” he crooned. “Tweet, tweet, tweet all day long.”

It’s all part of the buildup for Mr. Costa’s entrance as he walks out onto the Las Vegas stage to a soundtrack of “Double Vision” by rock band Foreigner. After a few more laughs, he launches into a speech about collaboration, innovation and problem solving.

Mr. Costa, according to the agency’s website, heads GSA’s “Human Capital Strategic Plan” and offers advice and human resource services to all GSA organizations. He received the Presidential Rank Award in 2002 as a “Meritorious Executive.” and in 2004 was a “Distinguished Executive,” according to the agency.

Another video features a spoof of LeBron James, the NBA basketball star, and repeated references to the television show “Law & Order.” The “stars” of the video are GSA executives Larry Melton and Robert E. Peck. Mr. Peck has left the agency in the wake of the scandal.

In yet another video, Mr. Neely sums up the conference experience in a closing speech.

“I think throughout the past few days, we have managed to have fun,” he says. “Above all else, we have managed to have lots of fun.”

Other records produced by the agency include materials from slide presentations. One slide is titled “More FUN Events.” Another slide contains a professionally written set of rules and directions, along with graphics, outlining a game called the “Minute to Win It Challenge.”

“When the clock starts, player may grab bubble wand and begin blowing bubbles from behind start line, 15’ from hoop,” the document states.

Another GSA document lists 20 terms of “Rat Pack Lingo” with definitions such as:

• “Wow-ee Wow WoW — expression of glee, joyful anticipation for fun.”

• “Ring-a-ding — term of approval for a beautiful girl.”

• “Gas/Gasser — a great situation.”
