In November of 2012, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report entitled “Geospatial Information: OMB and Agencies Need to Make Coordination a Priority to Reduce Duplication”. The report was based on GAO interviews with several federal agencies, including the Department of Transportation. GAO found that “the long-standing problem of effectively coordinating federal geospatial investments to reduce redundancies has yet to be resolved”. This presentation will outline GAO’s recommendations to DOT and describe the actions that we are taking to meet them.
