GAO: Implemented Recommendations Led to $75B in Gov’t Savings in FY 2015

GAOThe Government Accountability Office has said its recommendations that government agencies implemented in a move to improve efficiency resulted in savings valued at $74.7 billion in fiscal year 2015.

GAO said in a blog post published Thursday it achieved an average implementation rate of 80 percent for 1,800 in average annual recommendations it developed from fiscal year 2010 to fiscal year 2015.

According to the agency, 24 federal agencies and departments have yet to take actions on approximately 4,800 open recommendations as of November 12, 2015.

The office also noted that it issued letters to executive branch agencies’ top officials to notify them about the recommendations that still need to be addressed and collaborates with Congress to create laws out of those recommendations.

GAO said it believes the implementation of its recommendations could help enhance public services, improve federal initiatives and boost further revenues and savings across the federal government.
