GAO'S REVIEW OF SELECTED OPERATIONS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION'S OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL (GAO/RCED-83-116)
This review of selected operations of the Department of Transportation's (DOT) Office of Inspector General focused on how well the office complied with audit standards and how often audit recommendations were implemented. It was found that the office had made significant programs since its establishment in 1979; it has identified millions of dollars in potential cost savings and is responsible for many improvements in DOT programs and operations. The objectives, scope and methodology of the review are explained. It was recommended that periodic audits of the DOT'S audit follow-up system be performed and reported to the Secretary. The latter reports should disclose instances of corrective actions not being taken on sustained findings.
