coondoggie writes "The US government certainly has its hands full, especially now with the new administration transitioning in. And the list of problems and hot spots continues to grow. Watchdogs at the Government Accounting Office periodically assess the Fed's most high-risk areas or areas that are prone to fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement that can directly impact all of us. On the GAO hit list which was sent to the 111th Congress this week are all manner of issues from repairing the nation's cyber infrastructure and keeping taxpayer information private to how to effectively move the IRS and financial regulatory systems into the future. Interestingly one of the GAO's oft-targeted ventures, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Air Traffic Control modernization has been dropped from the high risk list. While the list currently includes some 31 areas that the GAO says are riskiest, for our purposes we'll focus on 10. [spam URL stripped]"
