New GAO Report – Health Resources and Services Administration

HEALTH RESOURCES AND SERVICES ADMINISTRATION - Review of Internal Communication Mechanisms, Staffing, and Use of Contracts, GAO-14-52, Dec 3, 2013

“HRSA is charged with improving access to health care services for people who are uninsured, isolated, or medically vulnerable. HRSA carries out its mission by providing funding and support to a wide variety of programs, which have grown in number and size since the agency was established in 1982. To manage these programs, HRSA has a staff of nearly 1,900 employees, supplemented by contract staff who perform a variety of tasks to support HRSA’s programs and operations. HRSA’s staff are organized into seven programmatic bureaus that are responsible for overseeing HRSA’s programs and nine cross-cutting operational support offices–each of which reports to the Office of the Administrator. In recent years, GAO reported on weaknesses in HRSA’s oversight and monitoring of certain programs.”
