- Full Report:
GAO was asked to comment on the cost effectiveness of several Government Printing Office (GPO) actions outlined in a column by Jack Anderson which appeared in the Washington Post. Those actions concerned renovations to offices at a cost of over $234,000 and the hiring of "Schedule C" employees, as well as increasing the number of General Graded (GG)-18 employees.
GAO found that: (1) the GPO Inspector General (IG) has reviewed and issued a report on the renovations; (2) the Joint Committee on Printing has reviewed the IG report and is satisfied with the conclusions; (3) the Schedule C appointments were approved by the Office of Personnel Management; and (4) the increase of GG-18 employees involved six positions, four of which where newly created.
