Military bases letters and requests received on proposed closures and realignments : supplement to a report to the Congress and the Chairman, Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission by United States ( Book )
11 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in English and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a supplement to GAO's 1995 report on military base closures and realignments (GAO/NSIAD-95-133). Many interested parties, including Members of Congress, sent GAO correspondence on base closures. In some instances, the letters and the material provided useful leads. In other cases, the material added support to issues that GAO was actively pursuing. GAO could not follow up on many of the points raised because of the limited time available to GAO. However, GAO believes that the letters and the materials may be helpful to the Base Closure and Realignment Commission in making future decisions. Consequently, GAO is providing all the letters and the materials to the Commission. This supplement contains copies of the letters and some of the materials

Federal debt : answers to frequently asked questions by United States ( Book )
10 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Articles, reports, and books on the federal debt and its effects tend to be complex and technical. As a result, the public frequently misunderstands these issues. For example, people often forget that even if Congress and the President agree to balance the annual budget within the next several years, the federal debt will continue to grow until balance is actually achieved. Although declining deficits and, ultimately, balanced budgets could reduce the debt as a share of the economy, the debt will not decline unless there is a budget surplus. This document responds to frequently asked questions about the federal debt, deficits, and interest rates. GAO organizes these questions into three sections: (1) trends in the federal debt, deficits, and interest; (2) sales and ownership of federal debt; and (3) effects of the federal debt. For readers who are interested in more detailed information on these topics, GAO includes a short bibliography
Transportation issues by United States ( Book )
13 editions published between 1978 and 1993 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Because of the complexity and importance of the U.S. transportation system, government at all levels; Federal, State, and local has assumed a wide range of roles and responsibilities in transportation. At the Federal level, these responsibilities include: promoting the development of an efficient and accessible national transportation system; promoting fair competition and protecting the public from abuse of monopoly power; protecting the safety of travelers and cargo; and balancing environmental, social, and energy goals with transportation needs. Current transportation issues involve: rail freight transportation, rail passenger service, urban mass transit, highway and auto safety, trucking industry regulation, air transportation, inland waterways, ocean transportation, and pipelines. Future developments in three areas; energy, environmental quality, and new technology are likely to have particular importance for the U.S. transportation system. GAO has been involved in: developing and coordinating balanced national transportation policies and programs; evaluating efforts at restructuring and rehabilitating the railroad freight transportation system; evaluating programs to develop a safe motor vehicle, highway transportation system; evaluating the management of Federal assistance programs for highway construction and maintenance; and evaluating the justifications for transportation regulation. Other GAO activities have included audits of Amtrak's management role and studies of aircraft safety and economic regulation. The GAO role in developing economically viable urban public transit systems has been limited
High-risk series an update by United States ( Book )
21 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
GAO's high-risk series was first published in 1990 and has been updated for each new Congress since. This year's list of high-risk programs is the longest in the exercise's nine-year history, with 26 programs or functions singled out for scrutiny. The 26 areas range from governmentwide problems, such as the Year 2000 computing challenge and information security weaknesses, to specific programs and operations with a history of waste, inefficiency, and poor management--from Medicare to the farm loan programs to defense contracting and military infrastructure. Two areas--financial management at the Forest Service and at the Federal Aviation Administration--were added, and one--Customs Service financial management--was removed. Lasting solutions to high-risk problems offer the potential to save billions of dollars, dramatically improve services to the public, and strengthen public confidence in the accountability and performance of the federal government
The public service issues confronting the federal civilian workforce : report to congressional committees and the Director, Office of Personnel Management by United States ( Book )
11 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A quality workforce is essential if Americans are to have an efficient and responsive federal government. Over the years, GAO has repeatedly cited problems affecting the quality and effectiveness of the federal workforce. In the future, traditional approaches to recruiting, hiring, training, and managing federal workers will grow increasingly outmoded. Major economic, demographic, and political changes are occurring that could significantly reshape the environment in which the workforce operated. This report summarizes some of the major improvements in federal human resource management that have occurred since 1991 and key open recommendations that GAO made to Congress, the Office of Personnel Management, and other agencies
