In response to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) compliance with the Small Business Act, which requires a particular reporting level for the Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization's (OSDBU) Director.

GAO determined that HHS is in compliance with the act's provisions concerning the OSDBU Director's required reporting level since, from the inception of OSDBU, its Director has been responsible only to, and has reported directly to, the Under Secretary.
