The C-X is one of several weapon systems being managed by the Deputy of Airlift and Trainer Systems Deputy for Airlift, Aeronautical Systems Division ASD, Air Force Systems Command AFSC, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. Some matters concerning the Air Forces use of weapon system funds came to our attention during our review of the C-X which we believe warrant your attention. Specifically, about 531,000, or 36 percent, of the C-X funds released by AFSC to ASDs C-X System Program Office SPO as of July 1, 1981, had been allocated for a building renovation, purchase of general-purpose automatic data processing equipment, and a management information system study. In our opinion, we question whether these funds have been used in a manner contrary to the intent of the congressional approval of the C-X program. Also, the continuing use of C-X funds in this manner may be inappropriate because the costs of such general-purpose projects, which are necessary for ASD to carry out its basic mission of developing and acquiring weapon systems, are normally charged to acquisition and command support funds rather than mission program funds.
