Statement from Vice President Biden on
Government Accountability Office's Latest
Report on Recovery Act Implementation
“We appreciate the Government Accountability Office’s continued oversight of the Recovery
Act and are pleased to hear that they once again find the program is meeting our unprecedented
standards for accountability and transparency. As the GAO notes, the Recovery Act has played a
critical role in providing health care assistance for the hardest-hit among us, kept hundreds of
thousands of teachers in America’s classrooms during tough economic times and, from
infrastructure to innovation, is supporting job-creating projects in every corner of the country.

“As we work to reverse a decade’s worth of failed economic policies and rebuild our economy
on a new foundation that strengthens the middle class, we continue to deliver on Recovery Act
programs on-time and, in many cases, under-budget. We are constantly looking for ways to
improve Recovery Act implementation and appreciate some of the new recommendations the
GAO has made today. As we have with previous reports, we have asked agencies to look at how
they can act on the new guidance to strengthen management of Recovery Act programs even
further.”
