The biennial Government Accountability Office high-risk list was released today, and it’s good news for the Federal Aviation Administration — it’s been removed from the list, where it’s languished since 1995.
Everybody else, not so much.
The list is up to 30 agencies and programs, including three additions this year: the federal financial regulatory agencies (shouldn’t this have been on here a few years ago?), the Food and Drug Administration’s medical products oversight and the Environmental Protection Agency’s processes for assessing, cataloguing and controlling toxic chemicals.
Take a look at the list here. Then come back and tell us what still needs to be done and what programs you think deserve or don’t deserve to be on the list.
