This report provides a framework for considering the budgetary implications of program reform options discussed in past GAO work but not yet addressed or enacted. To help Congress, GAO has developed an oversight framework that is intended to allow Congress to systematically address the goals, scope, and approaches for delivering these on-going programs. This report contains more than 100 examples of program reforms and revisions presented within this oversight framework that are based on key findings from selected past GAO audits and evaluations. GAO identified three areas that could provide a potential framework for congressional oversight. These areas include (1) reassessing program objectives, (2) revising formulas or eligibility rules to improve targeting of benefits, and (3) addressing program execution problems.
