The Board is charged, by law, with overseeing equal employment opportunity at GAO through review and evaluation of GAO's procedures, policies and practices. The Board's Office of EEO Oversight conducts studies of selected issues and prepares evaluative reports containing the Board's findings and recommendations.

GAO regularly provides data in its EEO profile to the Board. The Board selects topics for study from proposals put forth by staff during its program planning cycle. Prior to the preparation of proposals, the Director of Oversight may solicit ideas from the Union and employee groups, as well as from the Board's General Counsel. All employees should feel free to send suggested topics for Board study to the Director of Oversight at any time. Suggestions may also be submitted to
