Abstract : TESTIMONY: We are pleased to be here today to discuss the challenges facing the Department of Transportation (DOT) as it attempts to ensure the safe and efficient movement of people and goods and a cost-effective investment in the nation's transportation infrastructure. The administration has proposed a fiscal year 1999 budget of $43.3 billion to fund transportation programs. This is the first year that federal agencies are required to directly link their budgets to performance outcomes in order to better manage their resources. My testimony today, which is based on our recently completed and ongoing work, will discuss key resource management issues and performance challenges facing the Department in 1999 and beyond.
