H.R. 1847 would require the President to report to the Congress if an Inspector General (IG) is placed on paid or un-paid duty status. In addition, the President also would report to the Congress on any IG vacancies lasting more than 210 days.
CBO estimates that any budgetary effect from implementing H.R. 1847 would not be significant because the costs to report on the employment status of IGs would not impose a significant administrative burden.
