The Board of Commissioners of the District of Columbia requested GAO's decision as to whether the District is authorized to reimburse a Federal agency for the cost of personnel services rendered by an employee of the Federal agency to the District. The employee in question is employed as a part-time physician in the Health Department of the District working 14 hours per week. The Headquarters, Military District of Washington, wishes to employ him on a full time basis but will permit him to be detailed to the Health Department for 14 hours per week provided the District will reimburse it for the loan of his services.

GAO found that no statutory provision has been cited and none has been found authorizing the detail of personnel and reimbursement for services rendered as between the District of Columbia and Federal departments or agencies. Accordingly, GAO could not sanction any such arrangement.
