Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) update of its high-risk program, as presented in the President's fiscal year 1995 budget submission, focusing on OMB: (1) deletion of 26 program areas; and (2) progress assessments on the 84 program areas at the beginning of 1994.

GAO found that it: (1) agrees with OMB deletions in 8 of the 26 areas, disagrees with OMB in 3 of the 26 areas, and has no basis to evaluate the deletion decisions for 15 areas; (2) disagrees with the OMB decision to delete the Department of Defense's contract administration controls, the Department of Energy's weapons complex reconfiguration, and the Bureau of Prisons' staffing plans; (3) agrees with OMB progress assessments in 64 of the 84 areas, disagrees with OMB assessments in 3 of the 84 areas, and has no basis for evaluating the assessments for 17 areas; and (4) disagrees with OMB progress assessments of the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, Superfund Program controls, and Department of the Treasury's financial management controls.
