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.
