Abstract : As requested, GAO reviewed tuition assistance costs being charged to the government for family members of employees of educational institutions performing government-funded research. Our objectives were to (1) compare U.S. policies for paying these expenses with U.S. policies for paying similar expenses incurred by commercial businesses, (2) obtain information on the nature and extent of tuition assistance, (3) ascertain the costs to the U.S. government and the federal agencies involved, and (4) determine the salary levels of the employees whose families are receiving tuition assistance.
