Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO commented on the propriety of a Department of Agriculture (USDA) contract for the operation of an information dissemination system. The contract provided that the contractor would reimburse USDA a certain percentage of its revenue from fees it charged non-USDA users. GAO determined that: (1) the legislation that authorized the system authorized USDA to recover system costs from users; (2) the legislation authorized USDA to contract to operate the system; and (3) USDA could not recover more than the authorizing legislation allowed.
