Abstract : The options included in this report cover a wide range of federal policies and programs, reflecting the breadth of GAO'S work responsibilities. To aid in using this report, each option is presented in a standard format in appendix III. The options are presented by budget function; options covering multiple functions appear separately, as do options involving receipts. Cognizant congressional committees and subcommittees and the responsible executive department or agency are indicated for each option. The applicable theme from the framework is also identified. For spending options, we also indicate the affected budget account and subfunction and whether the spending is discretionary or direct. Each option is described in a brief narrative. Although these descriptions are intended to synopsize the key issues and problems developed in our audits and evaluations, readers are encouraged to refer to the related GAO products, listed at the end of each option, for a complete discussion. Lastly, as noted in our letter, to determine savings and revenue estimates, each option was discussed with the CBO and JCT. If specific estimates could not be provided, a brief discussion is included with the option. Where estimates are provided, the following conventions were followed.1
