The Secretary of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW) questioned the proposed manner of funding for the move of the Health Resources Administration (HRA) to Hyattsville, Maryland. The interagency apportionment by HEW of HRA moving costs among the appropriations of other HEW constituent agencies which benefited from the move, on the basis of the amount of additional space made available to each agency, is proper if the apportioned part of the costs incurred was necessary or incident to meeting the space needs of each constituent agency.
