Government Accountability Office Comptroller General Gene Dodaro has requested a budget increase for the agency in fiscal year 2015 to hire new staff and work on information technology and physical infrastructure, Federal News Radio reported Wednesday.

Jack Moore writes Dodaro spoke to a House Appropriations subcommittee about giving the GAO a 4-percent funding increase to $525 million, after Congress had restored GAO’s budget to $505 million in January from $480 million last year.

Dodaro said an additional boost would result in a 3,200-employee staff that works full time and help the agency update its technology and building operations.

A planned Center for Audit Excellence has also been included in the proposal to help the agency form domestic and international standards, as well as provide training to governments and other institutions for additional revenue.
