Better targeting of federal funds needed to eliminate unsafe bridges : report to the Honorable James R. Sasser, United States Senate by United States( )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In response to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the National Bridge Inspection Program and the Highway Bridge Replacement and Rehabilitation Program and found that almost 4 out of every 10 bridges in the United States are deficient, and almost one-fifth of U.S. bridges are structurally weak or unsound and must be closed, restricted to lighter vehicles, or immediately rehabilitated to prevent further deterioration or collapse. The Federal Government has become the major source of funds, particularly through the Federal bridge programs, to replace or rehabilitate deficient bridges, and many State and local governments depend heavily on these funds. Under the bridge programs, the Federal Government contributes up to 80 percent of replacement or rehabilitation costs, and State and/or local governments provide the rest. At current funding levels, it will take years to eliminate the deficient bridges already identified. In view of the size of the bridge problem and the limited amount of funds available, it is essential that program funds be used for bridges most in need. However, GAO found that: (1) the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) project eligibility criteria do not concentrate on bridges in the worst condition and most in need; (2) many worthy projects are funded, but bridges most in need are not always selected; and (3) funds have been apportioned to the States based on incomplete needs data. The major aspect of the National Bridge Inspection Program is that State and/or local governments maintain a bridge inventory and comply with inspection standards. GAO found that State and local governments have made progress since the program's start, but they are not fully complying with the standards. For example: (1) some inspectors do not meet the minimum qualifications for training and experience; (2) some State and local governments are not inspecting their bridges at least every 2 years as required by the standards, and some local governments are not inspecting their bridges at all; (3) the initial inventory and inspection of bridges, particularly bridges off the Federal-aid highway system, has not been completed; and (4) structurally weak bridges are not always being properly closed or posted for lower weight limits to protect against bridge collapses. Even if bridges are properly posted or closed, the postings and closings are often ignored by the public

Current status of the Federal/state arrangement for administering the social security disability programs : report to the Honorable Jim Sasser, United States Senate by United States( )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In response to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the operations of four state disability determination services (DDS) and the oversight responsibility of the Social Security Administration (SSA) to determine: (1) the effectiveness of the joint federal/state administration of the Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income programs; and (2) whether the federal government should take over the entire administration of these programs. GAO found that: (1) state laws and practices influence or control many administrative aspects of the programs' operations; (2) conflicts between SSA directives and state laws and practices caused inordinate delays in hiring additional personnel to handle increased workloads; (3) there was a significant variance among examiners' caseloads; (4) staffing composition and entry-level requirements varied widely among the states; and (5) the lack of uniformity was caused, in part, by SSA failure to regulate DDS administrative practices. GAO examined two alternatives to the present arrangement: (1) total federalization, with SSA administering all disability determination functions; and (2) contracting out, with private entities administering these functions. GAO found that: (1) total federalization would add more than 11,000 employees to the federal rolls; and (2) contracting out would raise a number of concerns as to the suitability of having such complicated and expensive programs run by the private sector. GAO found no evidence that a change from the current arrangement would produce better disability decisions or achieve program cost savings. GAO plans to address SSA management and administration in the areas of: (1) vocational rehabilitation; (2) consultative examinations; (3) decentralization of DDS; and (4) implementation of changes mandated by the 1984 disability amendments
