Reference: GAO Launches “Key Issues” Website, Database
From the Government Accountability Office:
The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) today launched a new online resource—GAO’s “Key Issues” website—to provide incoming Members of Congress and the American people with quick and easy access to bodies of GAO work on issues of critical importance to the nation.
“Following each election cycle, GAO provides information resources for the incoming Congress,” said Gene L. Dodaro, Comptroller General of the United States and head of GAO. “This new section of our website is intended to provide Members and their staff, as well as the public, with a good overview of key policy issues across government. Our intent is to help make the transition to the 113th Congress as informed and smooth as possible.”
The Key Issues website provides information about GAO’s work on a range of subjects. It contains more than 50 specific issue areas, each devoted to topics such as food safety; medical product oversight; disaster management; cybersecurity; realigning and closing military bases; stabilizing and reforming the U.S. financial system; and collaboration across governments, nonprofits, and the private sector.
