Abstract : This 2-volume report discusses GAO's views on 581 individual issues and associated recommendations made in the 47-volume Grace Commission report. This volume (Summary of Findings) sets forth the highlights of these views on all the President's Private Sector Survey on Cost Control (PPSSCC) issues reviewed. These issues span federal programs, management systems, and activities virtually government-wide. For purposes of presentation, the issues were organized into 10 broad subject areas: 1) federal management and administrative systems; 2)federal cash and credit management; 3) defense and international affairs programs; 4) human services and wage protection programs; 5) natural resource and community development programs; 6) Commerce and banking programs; 7) federal civilian personnel management; 8) federal property, printing, travel and transportation management, and civilian procurement; 9) federal automated data processing/office automation; and 10) revenue matters. Volume I addresses each of these areas in a separate chapter and contains GMO's conclusions and overall observations on the PPSSCC's issues. When discussing examples of individual issues, this volume also identifies the PPSSCC task force code for the issue being discussed so that more information on that issue can be obtained in Volume II. Volume II presents our more detailed assessment of each individual issue reviewed. These issues are organized in the same broad subject areas as presented in the summary. For ease of reference, Volume II also includes a cross-referenced index organized by PPSSCC task force code for each issue.
