GAO Reports: Main Page

The GAO Reports application contains reports (“blue books”) on audits, surveys, investigations, and evaluations of Federal programs conducted by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO). All published reports, testimonies, correspondence, and special publications were included. Products that are restricted or classified were not included. Reports are available as ASCII text and Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

GPO signed a partnership agreement with the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to provide permanent public access to the GAO Reports database on the GAO Web site. Under this agreement, GAO agrees to provide storage capacity and user access without restrictions on re-dissemination.

The GAO database on GPO Access is provided as an archive of the content as it was at the time the agreement was signed on September 19, 2008. For these and more recent reports, visit the GAO Reports database on the GAO Web site.
