Motor Fuels: Gasoline Prices in Oregon

Motor Fuels: Gasoline Prices in Oregon

Date: February 23, 2001
Creator: United States. General Accounting Office.
Description: Correspondence issued by the General Accounting Office with an abstract that begins "This correspondence provides information on (1) factors affecting retail gasoline prices in Oregon, including transportation costs, taxes, costs of full service, and other supply and demand conditions and (2) how gasoline price trends in Portland, Oregon, compare with trends in other West Coast cities. GAO identified several factors affecting gasoline prices in Oregon, including (1) higher-than-average costs associated with transporting gasoline from refiners to consumers because Oregon has no refining capability and a greater proportion of its gasoline demand comes from rural driving, (2) higher-than-average state gasoline taxes, and (3) a prohibition on self-service gasoline stations. GAO also found that although Portland's gas prices differ from those of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle, all four cities responded similarly to rapid price changes. Retail prices in all four cities follow similar patterns with respect to major periods of price increases and decreases."

Audit Guide: Auditing and Investigating the Internal Control of Government Purchase Card Programs (Supersedes GAO-03-678G)

Audit Guide: Auditing and Investigating the Internal Control of Government Purchase Card Programs (Supersedes GAO-03-678G)

Date: November 1, 2003
Creator: United States. General Accounting Office.
Description: Guidance issued by the General Accounting Office with an abstract that begins "This publication supersedes GAO-03-678G, Audit Guide: Auditing and Investigating the Internal Control of Government Purchase Card Programs, May 2003. The federal government of the United States--the largest and most complex organization in the world--expended approximately $15 billion through federal organizations' purchase card programs in fiscal year 2002. As the steward of taxpayer dollars, federal agencies are accountable for how purchase cards are used and how the funds are spent. To that end, federal agencies are responsible for establishing and maintaining internal control to provide reasonable assurance that (1) the goals and objectives of the purchase card program are met and (2) safeguards against fraudulent, improper, and abusive purchases are adequate. Recent congressional testimony and inspector general and GAO reports show that some federal agencies do not have adequate internal control over their purchase card programs. Without effective internal control, management has little assurance that fraudulent, improper, and abusive purchases are being prevented or, if occurring, are being promptly detected with appropriate corrective actions taken. A key element of internal control is monitoring that assesses the quality of performance over time and ensures that the findings of audits and ...

Response to Questions From Hearing on Patient Safety and Quality of Care at VA Facilities

Response to Questions From Hearing on Patient Safety and Quality of Care at VA Facilities

Date: October 13, 2000
Creator: United States. General Accounting Office.
Description: Correspondence issued by the General Accounting Office with an abstract that begins "This correspondence responds to follow-up questions to GAO's July 27, 2000, testimony before Congress on patient safety and quality of care at the Department of Veterans' Affairs (VA). The Patient Safety Centers of Inquiry and VA's Office of Research and Development are not directly linked organizationally. The four centers of Inquiry do not report to and are not funded by the Office of Research and Development. The Directors of the four centers report to either the Veterans Integrated Service Networks or Medical Center manager where they are located. The work at the Centers of Inquiry address some but not all of the known principal adverse and sentinel events at VA medical facilities. The key challenges to improving patient safety include setting goals, planning, and communicating the priority of patient safety to its employees. VA's patient safety program has not been fully implemented, because it is too early to predict whether, in the final analysis, it will be a model for other health care organizations."

Climate Change: Analysis of Two Studies of Estimated Costs of Implementing the Kyoto Protocol

Climate Change: Analysis of Two Studies of Estimated Costs of Implementing the Kyoto Protocol

Date: January 30, 2004
Creator: United States. General Accounting Office.
Description: Correspondence issued by the General Accounting Office with an abstract that begins "In 1992 the United States ratified the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which was intended to stabilize the buildup of greenhouse gases in the earth's atmosphere but did not impose binding limits on emissions. In July 1997, when preliminary negotiations on a new climate agreement were under way, the Senate passed a resolution expressing the sense of the Senate that the Clinton administration should not agree to limits on U.S. greenhouse gas emissions if such an agreement did not include economically developing nations or if it could seriously harm the U.S. economy. In December 1997 the United States participated in drafting the Kyoto Protocol, an international agreement to specifically limit greenhouse gas emissions. The Protocol did not impose limits on developing nations' emissions, and its possible effect on the U.S. economy was the subject of numerous studies during that period, including the two studies that are the subject of this report. Although the U.S. government signed the Protocol in 1998, the Clinton administration did not submit it to the Senate for advice and consent, which are necessary for ratification. In March 2001, President Bush announced that ...
