In response to a congressional request, GAO reviewed and analyzed the responses of pertinent agencies to a questionnaire concerning the safeguarding of national security information.

GAO obtained information from most of the agencies that deal with classified information. The questionnaire focused primarily on the agencies' experience with unauthorized disclosures and the ensuing investigations. GAO compiled the actual figures and estimates it obtained to assist Congress in its efforts to ensure compliance with the order and implementing directives.
