GAO/OP-91-1, "Status of Open Recommendations: Improving Operations of Federal Departments and Agencies" (January 16, 1991), summarized the findings and open recommendations resulting from General Accounting Office (GAO) audits and other review work in federal departments and agencies on which satisfactory legislative or administrative actions had not been completed as of September 30, 1990. The report contained information on over 2,200 GAO recommendations that remained open at that time. This report on 142 open recommendations--138 in the Transportation Issue Area and 4 in related areas--is being issued as a separate document to focus attention on the matters that are of primary interest to Congressional Committees and Subcommittees with transportation-related responsibilities. It also provides updates, where available, on changes in the status of action on the recommendations since September 30, 1990. The report includes: 1) discussions of the impact of GAO work in the transportation area over the past few years and the key open recommendations; 2) additional background information, not found in the governmentwide report, on the status of actions as of September 30, 1990, on GAO recommendations on transportation matters issued from January 1985 through September 1990; 3) details (and updates, where available) on the 138 open recommendations in the Transportation Issue Area as of September 30, 1990; 4) details (and updates, where available) on the 4 open recommendations in related areas; and 5) indexes of the recommendation addressees and committees of jurisdiction for the 142 open recommendations.
