GAO: Budget and Spending


The Government Accountability Office provides public access to its wide-ranging research related to Budgets and Spending.  Covered topics include Fiscal Outlook, Government Operations, Strategic Sourcing, Budget and Spending, Medicaid, Streamlining Government, and Public Transportation.

“The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) is an independent, nonpartisan agency that works for Congress. Often called the “congressional watchdog,” GAO investigates how the federal government spends taxpayer dollars.”

“Our Mission is to support the Congress in meeting its constitutional responsibilities and to help improve the performance and ensure the accountability of the federal government for the benefit of the American people. We provide Congress with timely information that is objective, fact-based, nonpartisan, nonideological, fair, and balanced.”
