This is the March 2, 2021 hearing on "2021 GAO [Government Accountability Office] High-Risk List: Blueprint for a Safer, Stronger, More Effective America," held before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform. From the Opening Statement of Carolyn B. Maloney: "The GAO High-Risk List identifies the areas of Federal operations most in need of improvement and transformation, complete with hundreds of ratings and specific recommendations for how to achieve progress. This year's report is titled 'Dedicated Leadership Needed to Address Limited Progress in Most High-Risk Areas,' a message that cuts right to the heart of the challenge we face. Over the past four years, the objective metrics of the High-Risk List shows that the Federal Government improved less and regressed more than before the President took office. Of the 35 areas that were included on the list, 20 were stagnant, five regressed, and two new areas were added. The country now strives to recover from an unprecedented pandemic that has killed more than 500,000 Americans and reduced the average life expectancy by one full year, a toll that falls particularly hard on minority populations." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Gene L. Dodaro.
