Final List of Significant PMA/GPRA/Clinger-Cohen Act Publications

1 – 30 April, 2009 

ALERT #09-15 is a final list of various publications related to the PMA, GPRA, or Clinger-Cohen Act issued from 1 through 30 April 2009 that might interest you.  You can use it as a checklist of URLs in case you missed any of the documents.  This list below compiled for April-dated publications is deemed final for our purpose. We allow at least 30 days after the close of a monthly period to publish a Final list since many GAO and OMB publications are actually released later than the publication date shown on covers. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) has revised its way of showing some URLs, i.e. rather than the traditional blue underlining in every case, they may show “Full Report”, “Highlights”, or “Summary”.  To download your selection, just put your cursor on that selection and Microsoft Outlook will show “CTRL+click to follow link”. So simply press your CTRL key and click as instructed to bring up the document. We recommend your considering highlighting pertinent publications on the list for colleagues in your agency to forward your suggestions to them.  Many other government practitioners do that.
