Government Accountability Office (GAO) Releases Tribal Transportation Report

    The GAO has released their Tribal Transportation: Better Data Could Improve Road Management and Inform Indian Student Attendance Strategies report after reviewing condition and school-access issues related to roads on tribal lands. The report examines:

    • The extent to which the National Tribal Transportation Facility Inventory (NTTFI) and  Deferred Maintenance Reporting (DMR) systems provide useful data on these roads;
    • Any challenges to improving and maintaining these roads; and
    • What is known about the connection between road condition and school attendance as well as other aspects of school transportation.
