Are agencies doing enough to weed out redundant programs?

Three years after the Government Accountability Office first reported that federal agencies were managing a maze of potentially duplicative federal programs, the watchdog agency has added nearly a dozen more areas to its tally of duplication and overlap. GAO's latest report identifies a total of 26 areas for potential cost-savings, ranging from fragmented operations to out-and-out copycat programs being run by multiple agencies.

Nicole Clowers, Government Accountability Office

Government auditors have taken a look a federal spending and programs. The Government Accountability Office's latest annual report to Congress repeats earlier findings. Namely, agencies have plenty of opportunities to get rid of programs that are fragmented, overlapping or duplicative. GAO identified 15 new opportunities for cost savings and revenue enhancement. Nicole Clowers, director of financial markets and community investment issues at the GAO, discussed the report with Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp.
