Annual Index of Reports, Testimony, and Correspondence (FY2012)

The Annual Index is a comprehensive list of all reports, testimony, correspondence and other publications issued by GAO during the fiscal year, grouped according to topics. We assign more than one topic to a report when that makes sense. For example, a report about education for veterans will be categorized as both a Veterans report and an Education report. So, you may see the same report in more than one topic below.
