GAO's Web site goes mobile
Congressional auditng agency moves to make its reports more accessible on smartphones
It’s now easier to access audits of agencies’ information technology programs with a new mobile version of the Government Accountability Office’s (GAO) Web site.
GAO recently announced it had come online with a new mobile version of its site that lets people more easily access reports on their smartphones such as BlackBerrys, iPhones and Droids. The site is automatically opened when people visit GAO’s regular site while using a mobile device, the auditing agency said July 28.
The new site is organized under three tabs that let people browse the latest reports and testimonies from GAO, see legal decisions and opinions, and highlight some of its work.

“People are increasingly using mobile devices to access the internet and GAO’s mobile Web site will enable more users to quickly get to GAO’s most recent reports, testimonies and legal decisions and learn about our efforts to promote accountability and help improve government performance,” said Gene Dodaro, acting comptroller general and head of the GAO.
