To maintain the freedom and to protect the freedom of allies, the United States must be prepared to successfully overcome potential military challenges to its worldwide interests. The essential elements in preparedness involve developing workable contingency plans and maintaining required forces, material, and equipment at optimum levels of readiness. This study examines current and emerging issues relating to contingency planning and readiness. It emphasizes major problems and concerns and congressional interest and needs. The study also represents the perspective GAO is using to organize its audit efforts.
