THI "*TIMET'S TU? ATE SECTOR SURVEY ON COST CONTROL

September 23, 1982

The Honorable William D. Ford
Chairman,
House Committee on the Post Office

and Civil Service
309 Cannon House Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20515

Dear Mr. Chairman:

I am writing to clear up an unfortunate misunderstanding.

During our appearance before your committee on September 15, 1982, you asked for a list of names. Mr. Bolduc and I assumed that you meant the updated list of Executive Committee members that I had identified and agreed to leave with your Committee (Transcript Page 10). We now realize that you and Representative Clay were referring to a list of the staff personnel of each Task Force rather than the current list of the Executive Committee members previously delivered to GAO.

Through an oversight, I did not leave with your Committee the list that I had described and was not alerted to this omission until informed of your reference to the subject at the September 21, 1982, hearing. Accordingly, I enclose the current list of the Executive Committee members that I had planned to leave with your committee on September 15, 1982.

Prior to our testimony, we had declined to make available to GAO a list of the individual Task Force staff personnel pending the receipt of an opinion of counsel that release of the list would not infringe their individual rights since the Task Force staff personnel are not special government employees and had not consented to such a procedure. We have now been advised by counsel that the list may be released to your Committee upon the understanding that you share the duty of protecting the privacy of the Task Force staff personnel. Acting upon that opinion I enclose a current list of the names and company affiliations of the 987 individuals who comprise the staff personnel of the 35 Task Forces, as well as a list

of the Executive Committee members who are cleared for assign-
ment as chairpersons of the Task Forces. Also enclosed is
a list of the Desk Officers and the Task Forces for which each
is responsible.

It is my understanding that these enclosures represent full compliance with your request, but if you have any uestions, please advise me.
