From the Document: "This statement summarizes previous GAO [Government Accountability Office] findings related to TSA's management of its pipeline security program. It is based on a prior GAO product issued in December 2018, along with updates as of April 2019 on actions TSA has taken to address GAO's recommendations from the report. To conduct the prior work, GAO analyzed TSA documents, such as its 'Pipeline Security Guidelines'; evaluated TSA pipeline risk assessment efforts; and interviewed TSA officials, 10 U.S. pipeline operators--a non-generalizable sample selected based on volume, geography, and material transported-- and representatives from five pipeline industry associations. GAO also reviewed information on TSA's actions to implement its prior recommendations."
