Civilian Agencies’ Development and Implementation of Insourcing Guidelines. GAO-10-58R, October 6, GAO.
“None of the nine civilian agencies we visited met the statutory requirement to develop and implement insourcing guidelines and procedures by July 9, 2009. To date, one agency–the Department of State–has issued what department officials characterized as “preliminary” guidelines in late July 2009 and plans to revise its guidelines as insourcing efforts evolve. Officials with the remaining eight agencies informed us that they have efforts underway to develop insourcing guidelines. However, these eight agencies are at various stages of developing their guidelines.”
