Legislative oversight is strengthened by the General Accounting Office (GAO),an operating staff arm Congress created in 1921 and originally designed to audit government expenditures. Since 1950 the GAO has been moving into what might be called management audits. These audits are policy oriented,seeking to determine what the basis for agency decisions and actions were.(See Chapter 11 for a fuller discussion of the GAO.)

Critics of legislative oversight contend that it often leads to micromanagement,which can be expensive. The Agriculture Department cannot even study whether potential savings might result from the consolidation of Forest Service regional offices. The secretary of cannot even close a small facility in state where both senators say defense spending should be cut. The Veterans Administration needs congressional approval for any personal action affecting three or more people.

The other means by which Congress,or any other U.S.legislative body,exercises control over executive agencies is appropriations process. Harold Seidman summarizes what the words“power of the purse”can mean to a public administrator:

As allies,the executive agencies and legislative committees make common cause against the“third house of Congress”:.the appropriation committees. Lords of the executive establishment generally enjoy the cozy atmosphere of legislative committee hearings,where they are received with courtesy and the deference due their office. But they shun,wherever possible,meetings with appropriations subcommittees,whose chairmen on occasion may accord them about the same amount of deference as a hardboiled district attorney shows to a prisoner in the dock. Before the House Appropriations Committee obtained new quarters,it was not uncommon for high officials to stand hat-in-hand for up to an hour in the corridors of the Capitol basement awaiting to be summoned by their appropriations subcommittee.
