This letter presents our evaluation of Department of Defense procedures for obligating Operation and Maintenance appropriations for stock fund purchases. Our evaluation was made as part of an overall review to determine if obligations of Operation and Maintenance funds in Defense were being made in accord with existing statutory requirements. This report is being sent to you because Defense has asked for 194.6 million in Operation and Maintenance funds to finance a change in the way obligations for purchases from stock funds are recorded. Details of our findings and recommendations are in appendix I.
