Abstract : Each year, GAO'S work contributes to many legislative and executive branch actions that result in significant financial savings and other improvements in government operations. Some, but not all, are identified through GAO'S system for periodically following up to determine the status of actions taken on the recommendations made in its audit and evaluation reports. About 70 percent of the recommendations made over the past 5 years have been implemented. This report includes summaries highlighting the impact of GAO's work and associated key open recommendations-those recommendations which have not been fully implemented. It also includes a set of computer diskettes with details of all open recommendations. This information should help congressional and agency leaders prepare for upcommg appropriations and oversight activities and stimulate further actions to achieve the desired improvements in government operations.
