Abstract : This report responds to concerns about abuses of interagency orders for goods and services under the Economy Act. General Accounting Office (GAO) examined the early impact of the Department of Defense's (DOD) policy changes for interagency orders on the Department of Transportation's Volpe National Transportation Systems Center. We also reviewed recent Coast Guard initiatives and legislative changes extending statutory requirements on interagency orders to other federal agencies.
