Federal auditors praised how the interagency e-Rulemaking Executive Committee has organized the process of choosing a centralized electronic rulemaking system based on cost savings, risks and security.
However, a Government Ac-countability Office report urged the committee to ensure that there are written agreements between the Environmental Protection Agency, the project's lead agency, and other agencies.
In the report, released earlier this month, GAO stated that EPA and its partner agencies should include performance measures such as cost savings and system performance in their written agreements. EPA agreed with the auditors' suggestions and said it would adopt them.
