The U.S. Government Accountability Office has launched a mobile version of its Web site that will allow users to more easily access GAO reports on their BlackBerries, iPhones, Droids, and other small-screen mobile devices.

The mobile site’s content is organized under three main tabs. The first allows users to browse the latest GAO reports and testimonies; the second provides users with the agency’s legal decisions and opinions; and the third, entitled “In the Spotlight,” highlights especially timely GAO work.

Visitors to the site can also use its search feature to quickly find specific GAO products. The mobile version of GAO’s site automatically opens when visiting the same URL as the GAO’s regular site,, via a mobile device.

“People are increasingly using mobile devices to access the Internet and GAO’s mobile Web site will enable more users to quickly get to GAO’s most recent reports, testimonies, and legal decisions and learn about our efforts to promote accountability and help improve government performance,” said Gene Dodaro, acting comptroller general of the U.S. and head of the GAO. “This initiative will help ensure our work is as accessible as possible, both for Congress and the public.”
