GAO Identifies New Priorities for GSA

The Government Accountability Office released new recommendations on security and property measures that the General Services Administration must prioritize. GAO said Thursday that GSA must augment efforts to consolidate Department of Homeland Security headquarters, reduce lease costs, budget maintenance and operations costs of new buildings and boost federal infrastructure cybersecurity.

The accountability office released five priority recommendations between 2014 and 2018. GSA addressed two of these priorities via augmented security reviews and information-sharing protocols. GSA also identified federal security roles across the agency. The new recommendations, released this year, bring the GSA priority count back to five.

As part of the High Performance Computing Modernization Program Frontier Project portfolio, NAWCAD engineers can leverage the computers’ predictive modeling without having to risk actual resources for live demos.
