An interim report about the report about reports about reports

The winner of the 2012 Ig Nobel Prize for literature has issued an update — a relatively short interim report — about progress on the report about its prize-winning report about reports about reports. That prize was awarded to The US Government General Accountability Office [US GAO], for issuing a report about reports about reports that recommends the preparation of a report about the report about reports about reports. [REFERENCE: "Actions Needed to Evaluate the Impact of Efforts to Estimate Costs of Reports and Studies," US Government General Accountability Office report GAO-12-480R, May 10, 2012.]

The interim report ends with these two sentences:

“DOD nonconcurred with our recommendations to require that source documentation used to develop the cost estimated is retained and easily accessible for review purpose and to establish and implement a verification process to provide reasonable assurance of consistency and completeness of cost inputs used to develop the cost estimate. According to a CAPE official no action has been or will be taken in response to these recommendations.”
