The General Counsel of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) requested GAO's opinion on whether the CIA may provide services to another agency through CIA personal services contractors where the ordering agency does not have the authority to contract for personal services.

GAO found that the CIA may use its personal service contractors to provide ordered services consistent with the Economy Act.
