Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO provided information on reporting requirements mandated by Congress, focusing on the number of: (1) such requirements under management-oriented legislation; and (2) the required reports the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and other federal agencies provided to the House Committee on Government Operations or to Congress during its last two sessions.

GAO found that: (1) legislation requires over 800 federal agency reports; (2) reports outnumbered requirements because a single requirement may generate numerous reports; (3) as of March 1992, there were 3,719 reporting requirements, and 3,331 reports provided to the 102nd Congress; and (4) both Congress and the executive branch expressed concern about the volume and growth of reporting requirements, particularly about the duplication, burdensomeness and usefulness of many reports, but little has been done about the problem.
