New GAO Key Issues Website


The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) recently launched a new “Key Issues” website.  The GAO is an independent, nonpartisan agency that evaluates federal programs and policies and offers recommendations to Congress.  This new website compiles GAO resources on topics that are considered of critical importance and highlights their most relevant reports. 

You can choose to browse materials by topics such as Energy or Health Care or by agencies such as the Defense Department or the Internal Revenue Service.  Or you can choose to browse one of five collections including Fiscal Outlook & the Debt, High Risk List, Duplication & Cost Savings, Recovery Act, and Technology Assessment.   Each key issues page includes an issue summary, GAO reports, podcasts and videos, and contact information for GAO subject specialists.
