- Full Report:
This annual report presents summaries of GAO conclusions and recommendations resulting from its audits and other review work in the Federal civil departments and agencies on which satisfactory legislative or administrative actions have not been taken. Information for this report was provided by an automated, centrally operated system, which was implemented by GAO in 1982 to allow regular followups of its recommendations by means of periodic tracking.
The summaries include matters affecting appropriations of Federal civil departments and agencies and cover planning, budgeting and accounting, and analysis. Entries contain the following information: title of report, budget function, legislative authority, summary statement, findings or conclusions, recommendations and, where appropriate, status of recommendations and agency comments or action. Recommendations in these summaries are open as of October 1, 1982, and the status of each recommendation was reviewed during the last quarter of calendar year 1982.
