Abstract:

We reviewed the Armys fiscal year 1991 procurement budget for the Abrams Tank and the Bradley Fighting Vehicle programs, which are included in the Armys Tracked Combat Vehicles budget. We also reviewed the Armys implementation of the fiscal year 1990 appropriations for these programs. Our objective was to identify opportunities for potential reductions. This letter summarizes our review. We identified potential rescissions and budget reductions of 545.9 million in the amounts requested or appropriated for these programs 440.8 million in fiscal year 1991 and 105.1 million in fiscal year 1990. These rescissions and reductions may be possible due to 1 reduced requirements, 2 lower cost estimates, and 3 current funding that is not needed until after fiscal year 1991.
