GAO helped the Congress and government leaders achieve a total of $35.4 billion in financial benefits--a $78 return on every dollar that was spent. Its work addressed many of the difficult issues that confront the nation, including diverse and diffuse security threats, changing demographic trends, increasing interdependency, rapidly evolving science and technology changes, a variety of quality-of-life issues, as well as government transformation challenges, and increasing federal budgetary constraints. It is important for the nation and its citizens not only that these issues are made visible, but also that the nation's leaders attend to them. In addition to having an impact on important national issues, GAO has taken major steps internally to be a model federal agency and world-class professional services organization."
