Podcast on Department of Defense “Quick Look”

Posted on March 31, 2014

Each year, we publish an annual report titled, “Assessments of Selected Weapon Programs,” more commonly referred to as the “Quick Look.”  In addition to providing brief summaries of numerous U.S. defense programs, the report provides insights on the Department of Defense’s acquisition process and serves as a valuable resource for Congress, congressional staff, and the public.

Today, we released the 2014 edition of the Quick Look. Check out the report, and listen to a podcast with Michael Sullivan, a director in our Acquisition and Sourcing Management team, discussing our work on weapon systems.

About Watchblog

GAO's mission is to provide Congress with fact-based, nonpartisan information that can help improve federal government performance and ensure accountability for the benefit of the American people. GAO launched its WatchBlog in January, 2014, as part of its continuing effort to reach its audiences—Congress and the American people—where they are currently looking for information.

The blog format allows GAO to provide a little more context about its work than it can offer on its other social media platforms. Posts will tie GAO work to current events and the news; show how GAO’s work is affecting agencies or legislation; highlight reports, testimonies, and issue areas where GAO does work; and provide information about GAO itself, among other things.
