Small Business Administration Employees Assigned to the White House
T-GGD-87-19: Published: May 20, 1987. Publicly Released: May 20, 1987.
- Full Report:
GAO discussed three Small Business Administration (SBA) Schedule C employees who SBA detailed to the White House. GAO believes that: (1) the employees do not perform duties related to SBA; (2) the duties the employees perform for the White House differ significantly from their SBA position descriptions; (3) while there is no statutory prohibition on such assignments, the use of the Schedule C authority for hiring the employees is inappropriate; (4) the White House has not reimbursed SBA for two employees' salaries, in violation of an applicable statute; and (5) the White House failed to report to Congress on the assignments in fiscal years 1985 and 1986, in violation of an applicable statute.
