Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the White House Travel Office's operations and personnel actions.

GAO found that: (1) the Travel Office review is unusual and time-consuming because access to pertinent information has been limited; (2) the White House has been reluctant to disclose information because of balance of power concerns and has edited significant amounts of information on the grounds that it is not relevant to the review or privileged information; (3) the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other investigative agencies have ongoing criminal investigations into the propriety of the employee dismissals; (4) access to legislatively-protected Internal Revenue Service taxpayer information has been limited; and (5) further delays and limitations could limit GAO review of White House Travel Office activities.
