ABSTRACT

High-Risk Series: Key Actions to Make Progress Addressing High-Risk Issues   [open pdf - 5MB]

"GAO [Government Accountability Office] maintains a high-risk program to focus attention on government operations that it identifies as high risk due to their greater vulnerabilities to fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement or the need for transformation to address economy, efficiency, or effectiveness challenges. Our latest High Risk Update, issued in February 2015, provides details on progress made and efforts needed to address 32 high-risk areas according to our five criteria for removal from the list which we published in November 2000: (1) leadership commitment, (2) capacity, (3) action plan, (4) monitoring, and (5) demonstrated progress."
