SUCH STATEMENTS MUST BE SENT TO THE SENATE AND HOUSE COMMITTEES ON GOVERNMENT OPERATIONS WITHIN 60 DAYS AND TO THE SENATE AND HOUSE COMMITTEES ON APPROPRIATIONS IN CONNECTION WITH THE AGENCY'S FIRST REQUEST FOR APPROPRIATIONS SUBMITTED TO THE CONGRESS MORE THAN 60 DAYS AFTER THE DATE OF THE DECISION.

WE WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR ADVICE OF THE ACTION TAKEN ON OUR RECOMMENDATION.
