Bureau of Land Management: Agency's Reorganization Efforts Did Not Substantially Address Key Practices for Effective Reforms

1 Open Recommendations
Agency Recommendation Status
Office of the Secretary for DOI The Secretary of the Interior should ensure its bureau leadership incorporates key practices for effective agency reforms prior to implementing reorganization activities at other Interior bureaus. (Recommendation 4)

The department neither agreed nor disagreed with our recommendation. As of May 2022, the Bureau of Land Management told GAO its reorganization to Grand Junction, Colorado, is complete, and it has begun a new process of moving some positions that had been moved to the states back to Washington, D.C. We will continue to monitor the steps the agency takes as it makes these changes.
