Description

Other written product issued by the Government Accountability Office with an abstract that begins "This is a supplement to GAO-10-82. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) comprises 15 agencies in several broad mission areas responsible for, among other things, assisting farmers and rural communities, overseeing the safety of meat and poultry, giving low-income families access to nutritious food, and protecting the nation's forests. USDA's 12 staff offices support these mission activities. In 1965 Congress gave USDA transfer of funds authority that allows it to charge the appropriations accounts of its agencies and staff offices in order to provide certain programs centrally that benefit those agencies and offices. USDA has used this authority to support several e-government, educational, and presidential initiatives, and the USDA visitors' information center; and to fund programs that provide activities and services that USDA's agencies and staff offices would otherwise have to obtain individually, such as sign language interpreter services and a drug testing program. The Senate report accompanying USDA's fiscal year 2008 appropriations, as reported out by the Senate Appropriations Committee, expressed concern that these charges--referred to as "Greenbook" charges--have grown excessively over the last few years. Noting that the disclosure of these charges to Congress has been limited and that the charges may affect the delivery of agencies' mission-related programs, the Senate report directed that we review USDA's Greenbook charges. This document provides a detailed listing of Greenbook charges by program for the individual USDA agencies and offices."
