GAO reviewed ISOO
's reports and agency documentation on changes implemented and controls in place, and interviewed security program managers at DOJ, its components, and ISOO

Leonard, the former ISOO director, said this sort of information was improperly shared by officials through insecure channels more frequently than the public may realize, although more typically within the unsecured .

Agencies are treated separately, for just the small section on this ISOO provision.
What is different is, regarding that small section of this ISOO office, that they are not subject to those -- they are subordinate to the sole enforcer of the EO, which is the President of the United States, and they are not subject to such investigation -- as I understand it, as I read the EO and as I had preliminary discussions in between the gaggle and today.
In the EO, as well, the ISOO does have the capability to go to the Department of Justice and ask for an opinion, of which they have done.
And I think that the ISOO office has had only a complaint about the Vice President's office, not about other places within the executive branch.
PERINO: It might not have been clear to them, and I don't know all the discussions that they had back and forth between the Vice President's office and ISOO.
But on the other hand, again, the Vice President and the President are not covered by the ISOO.
MR SNOW: This is something that the ISOO is responsible for overseeing.
