Questions were raised concerning the extent to which GAO has jurisdiction over the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and whether 44 U.S.C. 501, which requires every executive department, independent office, and establishment of the government to have its printing work performed at the Government Printing Office (GPO), is applicable to TVA. GAO stated that: (1) it does not settle either the claims or the accounts of TVA; (2) 44 U.S.C. 501 does not apply to TVA; and (3) TVA has the authority to have its printing done at sources other than GPO.
