"While I am glad you have an active oversight profile, I do have concerns about the number of recommendations that remain open, and the agencies’ efforts to close them out. Based on your last Semiannual Report, there are recommendations pending final agency actions going back to 2005! We’d like to hear your thoughts on how to incentivize the agencies to act."
