GAO IDs Savings
“Every day is Infrastructure Day in my state of Washington and across the country,” 
The U.S. Government Accountability Office released its 
 annual duplication reduction report
 last week. The report identifies 112 measures in 42 topic areas that can bring savings to agencies and the Nation. One suggestion is to consolidate acquisitions across the many organizations that create the Department of Homeland Security to save more than $100 million a year. See a GAO press release at this 
 and a Federal News Network article at this
