The Honorable John Conyers
Chairman, Committee on Government
House of Representatives
Dear M r. Chairman:
As you requested on February 2, 1990, we are providing
information on vacancies in statutory     inspector general
positions.  Specifically,   we gathered information      on which
inspector general positions   are currently    vacant and how
long they have been vacant.    In addition,    we identified   the
immediate previous position held by current inspectors
As of February 21, 1990, there were 8 vacancies among the
26 statutory     inspectors general whom the President must
appoint, with Senate confirmation.       The President had
nominated individuals      to fill three of these vacancies. In
addition,    there were 2 vacancies among the 32 inspectors
general who are appointed by entity heads pursuant to
requirements of section 8E of the Inspector General Act of
1978,   as amended.
The appendixes provide details        on (1) which agencies and
entities   have vacant inspector general positions,       (2) how
long the positions       have been vacant, and (3) what position
each of the incumbent inspectors general held prior to
being appointed.        Appendix I provides this information   for
presidentially     appointed inspector general positions.
Appendix II provides the same data for inspector general
positions     to be filled   by entity heads.
Unless you publicly   announce the contents of this report
earlier, we will not distribute   it further until 30 days
from its date.    At that time, we will send copies to the

Director,  Office of Management and Budget? interested
congressional    committees; and other interested parties.
Please contact me at (202) 275-9454 if you or your staff
have any questions concerning this report.
Sincerely   yours,
