B-146842: Published: Mar 4, 1988. Publicly Released: Mar 4, 1988.
GAO commented on an apparent clerical error in H.R. 2216, a bill to amend the Davis-Bacon Act. GAO noted that: (1) one of the provisions was intended to transfer to the Secretary of Labor the Comptroller General's ministerial function of making payments to underpaid employees under the act; and (2) the erroneous language would transfer the function back to the Comptroller General. GAO suggested language to correct the error.
