The Government Accountability Office (GAO) has unveiled a transition webpage to inform incoming administration officials and lawmakers of major federal challenges and suggest ways on how to address them.
The Presidential and Congressional Transition webpage includes links to several GAO resources, including priority recommendations, annual report on opportunities to reduce duplication, overlap and fragmentation, annual report on fiscal health and the high risk list areas across the federal government vulnerable to fraud, waste and abuse, the congressional watchdog said Tuesday.
“GAO is pulling together this information and our priority recommendations so that new and returning lawmakers and Presidential appointees can tackle critical challenges facing the nation, including the coronavirus pandemic,” said Gene Dodaro, comptroller general of the U.S. and head of GAO. “We believe that lawmakers and appointees will find our transition webpage helpful in prioritizing policy matters and developing oversight agendas.”
The webpage has a find-an-expert tool that can link users to the agency’s audit staff to ask questions or get a full briefing and provides users access to Key Issues pages and allows them to explore issues by agency or by topic.
