Student Financial Assistance Programs. Hearings Before a Subcommittee of the Committee on Government Operations, House of Representatives, Ninety-Fifth Congress, Second Session. July 27; August 3; and October 5, 1978.
Congress of the U. S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Government Operations.
Three hearings held before the U.S. House of Representatives on student financial assistance programs were concerned with the manner in which the Office of Education's assistance programs were being administered, the extent and nature of fraud, waste and abuse, and the progress of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare's (HEW) corrective action. Statements were presented by Joseph Califano, Leo L. Kornfeld, and Thomas Morris, and letters and statements were submitted for the record. The seven student assistance programs administered by HEW are described and problems and corrective measures are outlined. The six student financial assistance programs administered by the Office of Education were consolidated into a single bureau, and the relationship between headquarters and the regions was rearranged. A computer systems expert who was experienced in helping educational institutions solve management problems was appointed to head the new bureau. One problem that has been addressed is the need to effectively coordinate HEW student assistance programs with those of other agencies, such as the Veterans Administration. (SW)
