GAO discussed the structure and oversight of operational boards and commissions. GAO noted that: (1) 6 of the 17 boards and commissions selected for closer examination had operational characteristics; (2) the structure and management activities of each operational commission were guided by their authorizing legislation, and the legislation varied in requiring particular practices or activities; (3) two of the commissions contracted with the General Services Administration for administrative support services; (4) some federal agency agreements with commissions covered personnel management, budget and financial management, contracting and small purchasing, and property management services; (5) audits were needed to ensure the proper use and management of appropriated funds; and (6) the Office of Management and Budget believed that commission compliance with reporting requirements was poor.
