This testimony compilation is from the April 13, 2016 hearing, "Waste and Inefficiency in the Federal Government: GAO's [Government Accountability Office] 2016 Duplication Report," before the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, United States House of Representatives. From the testimony of Gene L. Dodaro: "The federal government continues to face an unsustainable long-term fiscal path based on the imbalance between federal revenue and spending. As the fiscal pressures facing the government continue, so too does the need for the Congress and executive branch agencies to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of government programs and activities. Such opportunities exist throughout government. To bring these opportunities to light, Congress included a provision in statute for GAO to annually identify federal programs, agencies, offices, and initiatives (both within departments and government-wide) that are duplicative. As part of this work, GAO also identifies areas that are fragmented or overlapping as well as additional opportunities to achieve cost savings or enhance revenue collection." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Gene L. Dodaro, John Dalrymple, David Tillotson, and Patrick H. Conway.
