It is the duty of the six foregoing committees to examine into the state of the accounts and expenditures respectively submited to them, and to inquire and report particularly-Whether the expenditures of the respective Departments are justified by law : Whether the claims from time to time satisfied and discharged by the respective Departments are supported by sufficient vouchers, establishing their justness, both as to their character aod amount: Whether such claims have been discharged out of funds appropriated therefor: and whether all moneys have been disbursed in conformity with appropriation laws : and whether any, and what, provisions are necessary to be adopted, to provide more perfectly for the proper application of the public moneys, and to secure the Government from demands unjust in their character, or extravagant in their amount. And it is, moreover, the duty of the said committees to report, from time to time, whether any, and what, retrenchment can be made in the expenditures of the several Departments, without detriment to the public service: Whether any, and what, abuses at any time exist in the failure to enforce the payment of moneys which may be due to the United States from public defaulters or others; and to report from time to time, such provisions and arrangements as may be necessary to add to the economy of the several Departments, and the accountability of their officers.
