Report To The Chairman, Subcommittee On
Human Resources, Committee On Post Office
And Civil Service, House Of Representatives
OF THE UNITED STATES
Government Agencies Need Effective
Planning To Curb Unnecessary
Year-End Spending
Continued high year-end spending by some
Government agencies indicates a need for
management controls. Not all year-end spend-
ing is uncalled for. Some may be in the Gov-
ernment's best interest or reflect manage-
ment's desire to control funds. However, such
spending can often adversely affect procure-
ment, the awarding of grants, and subsidies and
cause waste.
Congressional and Presidential interest have
prompted agencies to take some corrective
action. GAO recommends using an advance
procurement planning system tied in with the
budgetary and apportionment process to help
smooth out spending patterns. GAO supports
the temporary spending limitation proposed
in H.R. 7287 as a means to get a handle on the
underlying problems.
