Comments on H.R. 1503, the Federal Grant and Cooperative Agreement Act of 1977, support the enactment of the bill.

The legislation has a laudable goal--to clarify and maintain the legal instruments through which the Federal Government acquires property and services and furnishes assistance to State and local governments and other recipients. Specifically, it requires the Office of Management and Budget to study alternative means of implementing Federal assistance programs, and if feasible, to develop a comprehensive system of guidance for Federal assistance programs. GAO has testified three times before congressional bodies in support of similar legislation. Enactment of H.R. 1503 would have the effect of adopting the substance of two recommendations (F-1 and F-2) of the Commission on Government Procurement. (DJM)
