Budget Request for the U.S. General Accounting Office
T-OCG-99-22: Published: Feb 3, 1999. Publicly Released: Feb 3, 1999.
GAO discussed its fiscal year (FY) 2000 budget request.
GAO noted that: (1) GAO is dedicated to good government through its commitment to three core values: accountability, integrity, and reliability; (2) GAO needs to lead by example and to maximize its capabilities in an environment of limited resources; (3) to accomplish this objective, GAO needs to make several targeted and strategic investments in human capital, such as training, performance measurement, and rewards systems; (4) GAO's budget request for FY 2000 will help the agency begin to address some of these critical needs and remain competitive in recruiting and retaining high caliber and skilled staff; and (5) in addition, this funding will help GAO gain a better understanding of its human capital, work processes, and technology needs and identify the most economical and effective course of action to address them in the years ahead.
