GAO Review of Contractor Employee Compensation

By: Mary Karen Wills

The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) is performing a review of government contractor employee compensation. The report is due to Congress by May 2, 2013. Congress has requested that the GAO assess the impact of proposed regulations included in the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act that would further cap-allowable executive compensation for contractors. GAO must assess the potential impact of a new cap on the contractor industry base. In addition, GAO will assess the inconsistencies of current caps on executive compensation across federal agencies.

GAO is currently soliciting input. To provide comments, go to http://www.gao.gov/
