We identified nine contractor employees who were H-1B visa nonimmigrants between January 31, 2017, and January 31, 2019. We determined the nine contractor employees we identified as being H-1B nonimmigrants met selected criteria of the visa regulations. However, we could not confirm the actual number of H-1B visa nonimmigrants or foreign nationals who worked at TVA during the scope of our evaluation because the data in citizenship and visa fields in TVA’s Human Resources system was determined to be unreliable. Additionally, we identified an opportunity for improvement related to verifying documentation supporting nonimmigrant employment eligibility of contractor employees.
