Abstract : The variety of procedures used to determine and pay fees to Government-sponsored nonprofit organizations continues to reflect a lack of uniformity in Federal policy. The weighted guidelines used by the Department of Defense in determining fees for the organizations GAO reviewed are not appropriate. Weighted guidelines support historical rates sufficiently large to accumulate reserves, despite alternatives available to minimizing or eliminate the need for such reserves. This report supports GAO's 1969 recommendation that the Director, Office of Management and Budget, through the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, develop uniform fee guidelines for Government-sponsored nonprofit entities.
