Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the Department of Education's student financial aid programs, focusing on the: (1) status of Education actions in response to numerous recommendations concerning the administration of student financial aid programs; and (2) reasons Education gave for not acting on some recommendations.

GAO found that: (1) Education has made progress in initiating actions to address some recommendations; (2) some of Education's corrective actions have resulted in major program changes; (3) Education will not address 19 recommendations because it believes they have already been addressed by previous corrective actions; and (4) some corrective actions do not address Education's program management problems.
