In response to a congressional request, GAO obtained information concerning the transfer of staff and databases within the Department of Transportation's Research and Special Programs Administration (RSPA).

GAO found that: (1) although RSPA has not completed its transition planning, it began staff reassignments in November 1986; (2) RSPA has not completed its transition plan for the 28 databases, but has committed to ensure continuity of services; (3) RSPA has not conducted a cost-effectiveness analysis of the transfer, but is developing some estimates of the operations costs in the new site; and (4) because RSPA plans to use contractor staff to perform only the functions of the staff who did not transfer, the requirements of Office of Management and Budget Circular A-76 do not apply.
