GAO’s Next 100 Years: Oversight, Insight, and Foresight

2021 year marks the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Government Accountability Office (GAO). After World War I, Congress sought to control growing government expenditures and debt and created GAO to assess the legality and adequacy of government expenditures. Today, GAO provides critical support to Congress through its audits, legal opinions, and analyses that span the breadth of the government’s myriad activities. This program looks back at the institutional development of GAO over the past century, and looks forward at the role the “government watchdog” will play in its next 100 years.
