GAO Unveils New Mobile App to Aid Upcoming Presidential and Congressional Transitions

mobile appThe Government Accountability Office has introduced a mobile application designed to help users access GAO’s priority recommendations for government operations management in support of the upcoming presidential and congressional transitions.

Gene Dodaro, U.S. comptroller general and GAO leader, said Thursday the app is designed to directly lay out lists of major changes necessary during the transition phase and allow users to navigate agency reports.

“GAO has organized its work to help President-elect Donald Trump and the next Congress tackle critical challenges facing the nation, fix agency-specific problems, and scrutinize government areas with the potential for large savings,” Dodaro added.

The app, which is now available on the App Store and Google Play, also direct users to newly established congressional and presidential transition web pages that offers GAO resources that officials can use to set priorities and implement reforms.

GAO noted that the transition web pages also features a management agenda, the agency’s high risk list and information on key national challenges the U.S. faces.
