GAO’s reports and testimonies give Congress, federal agencies, and the public timely, fact-based, non-partisan information that can improve government operations and save taxpayers billions of dollars.
In 2018, the administration released its government-wide reform plan aimed at making the federal government more efficient and effective. The Office of Management and Budget oversees the proposals with support from other lead agencies.
This report, part of GAO's performance and accountability series, provides an overview of management challenges and program risks facing the federal government. The series also contains 21 separate reports on individual agencies.
