The GAO assists Congress in making informed decisions by providing information on policy and program issues, as well as by providing recommendations to make government more effective and responsive.

    GAO's work is designed to address four goals:

    - to help the Congress address current and emerging challenges to the well-being and financial security of the American people;

    - to help the Congress to respond to changing security threats and the challenges of global interdependence;

    - to help transform the Federal government to address national challenges; and

    - to maximize the value of GAO by enabling quality, timely service to Congress and by being a leading practices Federal agency.

    Interns must work a minimum of 400 hours, full-time (40 hours per week) not to exceed a total of 640 hours.

Specific duties are:

•Conducting analyses that yield quality information aligned with needs; identifying relevant information, patterns/inconsistencies, relationships, interdependencies, and potential implication.

•Preparing quality written work that meets relevant writing and evidence standards, and that is appropriately targeted to the audience and purpose.

•Communicating relevant and accurate information during formal or informal presentations, meetings, or interviews.

•Partnering or collaborating with others to address issues or solve problems; following up with others to ensure needs are met.

•Contributing to team efforts through participation in activities/meetings, soliciting and listening to others’ opinions, and working collaboratively to accomplish team goals.

The anticipated start date is May/June 2018. Student interns may have an opportunity for a permanent or term position based on a successful intern experience (completion of a minimum of 400 hours of work) and successful completion of degree requirements. In addition, the conversion could be team specific. The ability to convert to a permanent or term appointment with 400 hours of work experience is contingent upon budgetary conditions and staffing needs at the time of eligibility.
