After an Office of Management and Budget survey to identify unneeded executive reports to Congress, GAO identified several reporting requirements which it believes that Congress should consider in legislative proposals designed to achieve cost savings and eliminate or modify unneeded reporting requirements.
Matter for Congressional Consideration
|Congress should repeal section 601(b) of the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act Amendments of 1978 to eliminate the requirement for the Comptroller General's review and evaluation.|
|Congress should amend the Civil Service Reform Act to eliminate the requirement for a GAO annual report.|
|Congress should amend the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974 to eliminate the GAO annual report on progress to improve program and budget information for Congress.|
|Section 11(1) of the Amtrak Improvement Act of 1974, 45 U.S.C. 644(2), should be amended by: (1) striking from paragraph (A) "The Comptroller General of the United States shall conduct annually a performance audit" and inserting in lieu thereof "The Comptroller General of the United States may conduct audits;" and (2) repealing paragraph (C).|
