The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) is working on a report for Congress about the impact of the H-1B cap on the competitiveness of technology companies doing business in the United States. The study, which focuses on the impact of the H-1B cap on the competitiveness of U.S. technology companies, was mandated in the House Report of the Consolidated Security, Disaster Assistance and Continuing Appropriations Act of 2009.
The GAO will address issues such as:
1) The impact of the H-1B cap on the costs facing technology companies doing business in the U.S.
2) The impact of the H-1B cap on the ability of technology companies to recruit top talent,
2) The impact of the H-1B cap on technology companies’ decision to outsource jobs overseas, and
3) The impact of the H-1B cap on incentives for technology companies in the U.S. to invest in research and development in the United States?
Companies may be randomly slected for participation in the study, however, the company name and details will remain confidential.
