Abstract:

As requested, GAO reviewed tuition assistance costs being charged to the government for family members of employees of educational institutions performing government-funded research. Our objectives were to 1 compare U.S. policies for paying these expenses with U.S. policies for paying similar expenses incurred by commercial businesses, 2 obtain information on the nature and extent of tuition assistance, 3 ascertain the costs to the U.S. government and the federal agencies involved, and 4 determine the salary levels of the employees whose families are receiving tuition assistance.
