A place to highlight the absurd, the inefficient, and waste in the federal government.

As the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee, we’re committed to exposing and reforming waste, fraud, and abuse within the federal government. We created Wasteland to shine a spotlight on these projects.

Here’s how it works:

  • We discover and highlight ways in which the federal government wastes or misuses taxpayer dollars.
  • We assign a number of wastebaskets (1-10) to each project, 10 being the most egregious waste.
  • We offer our recommendation on how the government might achieve a better result.

So take a few minutes, and head over to oversight.house.gov/wasteland/.

If you have examples of waste, fraud, and abuse, send them to Oversight.Press@mail.house.gov.
