Government Accountability Office November 2010 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Public Availability of Government Accountability Office Records
Document Number: 2010-29353
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-11-24
Agency: Government Accountability Office, Agencies and Commissions
These proposed revisions would clarify procedures to obtain Government Accountability Office (GAO) documents. Published GAO documents such as testimonies, reports, and decisions are available to the public on GAO's Web site and also may be requested over the telephone. Their wide availability eliminates the need for regulations governing their request, and accordingly published GAO documents would no longer be subject to the procedures of this part under the proposed rule. The revisions would also clarify that records compiled for law enforcement purposes by another agency and records provided by GAO to another agency for law enforcement purposes are not subject to disclosure. The existing regulatory language on this point is imprecise. The proposed changes would add steps to the procedures for using GAO's public reading facility, to facilitate the efficient use of the facility. Finally, the proposed revisions would make various housekeeping changes reflecting shifts in GAO's operating procedures. These proposed changes will clarify for the public which GAO documents are subject to this part and how to obtain such documents.
