Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 2681, Integrity Committee Transparency Act of 2021   [open pdf - 156KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office [CBO] Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the House Committee on Oversight and Reform on May 13, 2021. From the Document: "H.R. 2681 would broaden the responsibilities of the Integrity Committee of the Council of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE). The bill would require the committee to provide more information to the Congress about its investigations of Members and its investigations of allegations of wrongdoing by inspectors general and their staff members. Finally, H.R. 2681 would require a former inspector general to be appointed to the committee. Using information from CIGIE, CBO estimates that implementing H.R 2681 would cost less than $500,000 annually and about $1 million over the 2022-2026 period. The costs would primarily stem from the appointment of a former inspector general to the committee. On June 16, 2021, CBO provided a cost estimate for H.R. 2662, the IG [Inspectors General] Independence and Empowerment Act, as ordered reported by the House Committee on Oversight and Reform on May 25, 2021. H.R. 2681 is similar to title IV in H.R. 2662 and the estimated costs are the same for both provisions."
