Federal Vacancies Act Reports

Pursuant to the Federal Vacancies Reform Act of 1998, executive branch departments and agencies are required to report to Congress and GAO information about the temporary filling of vacant executive agency positions that require presidential appointment with Senate confirmation. The act provides that the Comptroller General report to specified congressional committees, the President, and the Office of Personnel Management if an acting officer is determined to be serving longer than the 210 days (including applicable exceptions) established by the act.
