Abstract:

This letter responds to an August 9, 2000, request from your Subcommittee on Economic Development, Public Buildings, Hazardous Materials, and Pipeline Safety. The Subcommittee asked that we obtain updated information on the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts AOC progress in implementing six GAO recommendations that were included in our 1993 report entitled Federal Judiciary Space Long-Range Planning Process Needs Revision GAOGGD-93-132, Sept. 28, 1993. In that report, we identified three major problems associated with AOC s long-range planning process 1 the inconsistent treatment of federal districts, 2 the use of inaccurate information in estimating space baselines, and 3 the use of an inappropriate methodology for projecting caseloads. The report s six recommendations identified various steps that AOC could take to help address the problems and improve its long-range planning process.
