The United States Tariff Commission requested GAO's opinion on the adequacy of the agreement between the Commission and and the Department of Commerce for reimbursement for work on export and import statistics done by Commerce for fiscal year 1937.

GAO found that the agreement for the performance of the work by the Department of Commerce for the Commission on a reimbursable basis is an arrangement which has been in effect for several years and which was intended to be applicable for the fiscal year 1937. As such, GAO will not be required to object to the use of Commission funds to reimburse the Department of Commerce for the actual expenditures incurred in the performance of the work in question.
