BY THE COMPTROLLER GENERAL



Report To The Congress


OF THE UNITED STATES


Millions Can Be Saved By Improving

The Productivity Of State And Local

Governments Administering Federal

Income Maintenance Assistance

Programs


In this report, GAO identifies millionsof dollars
associated with the use of inefficient procedures
in administering three Federal income mainte-
nance assistance programs--Unemployment In-
surance, Aid to Families with Dependent Child-
ren, and Food Stamps. The millions identified
appear to represent only a small percentage of
the potential for savings that could be realized
if systematic approaches and incentives to in-
crease productivity were employed in these
programs.

Currently, the Federal assistance system lacks
mechanisms to hold managers accountable for
productivity improvement or to reward those
who meet or exceed productivity goals. Yet,
such mechanisms are essential if the poten-
tial improvements GAO identifies are to be
attained.
