Government Accountability Office High-Risk Report

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

On February 15, 2017 the Government Accountability Office (GAO) published the, “HIGH-RISK SERIES: Progress on Many High-Risk Areas, While Substantial Efforts Needed on Others” report. The publication cited previous GAO recommendations made over the past two years in the areas of federal Indian education, health, and energy programs. “Incomplete and inaccurate data” was cited as a reason why education, health, and energy programs fall short of meeting tribal and individuals’ needs.

Improving Federal Management of Programs that Serve Tribes and Their Members begins on page 200 of the report.
