Brief Executive Summary
The Subcommittee on Government Management, Information, and Technology of the House Committee on Government Reform investigated the implementation of federal financial management laws in executive departments and agencies. They found that agencies continued to miss statutory reporting deadlines, reporting of certain Social Security and Medicare projections were inconsistent, and weaknesses and noncompliance with the laws were still a prominent issue. The report recommended reforms to management control over financial management systems, strengthening the ability of the Inspector General to carry out their financial management responsibilities, and strengthening the President role as Chief Executive Officer of the executive branch by establishing an Office of Management.
