Computers and automatic data processing (ADP) continue to increase their contribution to agency management, resulting in both greater expenditures and an apparent irreversible, growing dependence on the technology. This combination calls for knowledge and effective management of such resources and appropriate auditing. Appropriate auditing of ADP management encompasses a review of the agency's history to see if current problems were noted before and, if so, how they were addressed and resolved. This bibliography should help the auditor reviewing recurring problems since it includes the majority of GAO reports, decisions, and letters dealing with ADP since 1981.
