In response to a congressional request, GAO evaluated the effectiveness of the Department of Energy's (DOE) management and funding of environmental, safety, and health (ES&H) activities at its nuclear defense facilities.

GAO found that DOE: (1) implemented many management and funding procedures to improve its ES&H efforts in response to GAO recommendations; (2) established a program within the Office of Defense Programs to consolidate the day-to-day operational management and funding of environmental activities; (3) developed a computer system to track ES&H budgeted and obligated funds; and (4) revised ES&H management objectives and standards to strengthen its oversight. GAO noted that it was unable to determine the adequacy and effectiveness of those efforts, since DOE had not completed them.
