          The Honorable Henry J. Hyde
          Chairman, Committee on the Judiciary
          House of Representatives

          Subject: Federally Chartered Corporation: Review of the Financial Statement Audit
                   Reports for the General Federation of Women's Clubs for Fiscal Years 1997-1999

          Dear Mr. Chairman:

          As requested, we reviewed the audit reports covering the financial statements of the General
          Federation of Women's Clubs, a federally chartered corporation, for the fiscal years ended
          June 30, 1997, 1998, and 1999. The corporation's objective is to communicate with and unite
          the various women's clubs and like organizations throughout the world for their mutual
          benefit and to promote their common educational, industrial, philanthropic, literary, artistic,
          and scientific interests.

          Federally chartered corporations are required under 36 U.S.C. 10101 to

          * present the corporation's assets and liabilities and reasonable detail on the corporation's
             income and expenses in annual financial statements,

           obtain an annual financial audit by an independent public accountant, and

          * submit the auditor's report and the corporation's financial statements to the Congress.

          The objective of our review was to determine whether the audit reports complied with the
          financial reporting requirements of the law. In carrying out our work, we reviewed the
          corporation's financial statements and the accompanying notes, performed certain analytical
          procedures related to information presented in the financial statements, reviewed the
          auditors' reports, and made inquiries to corporation officials or the auditors as we deemed
          necessary. We did not review the auditors' working papers. Our review disclosed no
          reportable instances of noncompliance.
