GAO s CongressionalProtocols

Page 1GAO-01-145G GAOs Congressional ProtocolsUnited States General Accounting Office Washington, D.C. 20548
November 3, 2000This document contains the protocols governing the General Accounting Office’s (GAO) work for the Congress. The need forthese protocols was consistently voiced to me by Members of theCongress and their staffs since my nomination as ComptrollerGeneral. I firmly believe they will enable GAO to better serve theCongress, improve satisfaction with our work, and ensureequitable treatment of all requesters.These protocols are intended to provide clearly defined andtransparent policies and practices relating to GAO’s work. Theyalso provide a means of holding GAO accountable forcommitments made to the Congress and ensuring that GAO isconsistent in dealing with all committees and Members. Theyreflect a number of refinements made on the basis of feedbackfrom Members and staff during our trial implementation phase(January 2000 to September 2000). Along with all members of the GAO team, I look forward to usingthese protocols to continue to serve the Congress for the benefitof the American people. We will continue to monitor theapplication of these protocols and will consider what, if any,changes should be made in the future. Any changes will be madein consultation with the Congress.
I encourage you to contact ourOffice of Congressional Relations on (202) 512-4400 if you haveany questions or comments on these protocols.David M. WalkerComptroller Generalof the United States
