GAO reviewed the efforts of the Architect of the Capitol, Library of Congress, and Government Printing Office to obtain payroll and personnel system support.

GAO found that: (1) all three agencies were experiencing problems with their payroll and personnel systems and could significantly benefit by using a shared system; (2) six executive agencies' operating systems could be shared with the three legislative agencies; (3) of the six executive agencies, the Department of Agriculture's National Finance Center (NFC) and the Environmental Protection Agency were the most desirable candidates; and (4) NFC was the strongest choice because of its experience in handling agency conversions and its proven success in implementing a well-functioning, integrated payroll/personnel system.
