From the Document: "The purpose of this letter is to provide an update on the overall status of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) implementation of GAO's [Government Accountability Office] recommendations and to call your personal attention to areas where open recommendations should be given high priority. In November 2019, we reported that on a government-wide basis, 77 percent of our recommendations made 4 years ago were implemented. USDA's recommendation implementation rate was 72 percent. As of March 2020, USDA had 181 open recommendations. Fully implementing all open recommendations could significantly improve USDA's operations."
