An official from the Office of the Secretary of Defense told us that a FYDP will not be submitted with this years budget. However, a FYDP will be prepared at the completion of this years budget cycle. The official explained that major changes in the national security environment have significantly affected defense planning, programming, and budgeting decisions. The fiscal year 1991 budget submitted in January 1990 shows a 167 billion reduction from the budget submitted in April 1989 for the years 1990-94. Decisions have been made on where and how to make the reductions planned for fiscal year 1991, but decisions remain to be made for the outyears 1992-94. Accordingly, a FYDP cannot be prepared at this time. DOD has provided congressional committees and us with a general summary reflecting outyear 1992-94 funding levels for selected programs. However, additional adjustments are needed to prepare a FYDP that is consistent with the outyear funding levels in the Presidents budget.
