U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO)

Overview The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) is an independent, nonpartisan agency that works for Congress.

For example, they identified $214.7 billion in financial benefits in fiscal year 2019—a return of about $338 for every $1 invested in us. They also identified 1,418 other benefits that led to program and operational improvements across the government. Read the press release about these record numbers.
