The National Performance Review (NPR) has claimed about $137 billion in savings from its efforts to reinvent the federal government. However, this amount includes savings from agency-specific recommendations that could not be fully attributed to NPR's efforts. In general, the savings estimates GAO reviewed could not be replicated, and there was no way to substantiate the savings claimed. GAO also found that some savings were overstated because the Office of Management and Budget counted savings twice and two of the estimates were reported incorrectly, resulting in claims that were understated.
