Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO provided information on its independent inquiry into allegations of improper personnel selection in July 1994 by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) at the Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans Hospital in Columbia, Missouri.

GAO noted that: (1) the selection of the retired Hospital Director's son to be the Hospital's Chief of Human Resources complied with VA personnel and anti-nepotism policies and procedures; (2) during GAO's investigation, both former and current Hospital managers and Human Resources personnel voiced their perceptions that the selection process had been flawed, steering the selection to the retired Hospital Director's son; and (3) however, these individuals could not identify any VA policy or procedure that had been violated.
