- Full Report:
GAO was asked to comment on a proposed revision to an Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular which provides guidelines for the use of consulting services. Comments were also requested on a proposed new bulletin which extends management controls similar to those in the Circular to the acquisition of certain management and professional services, special studies and analyses, and management and support services for research and development activities. The purpose of the proposed revisions is to further tighten internal agency management controls over the use of the prescribed services. GAO has no objection to the proposed revisions to the Circular, nor to the proposed bulletin.
