Abstract:

We examined the Department of the Army fiscal year 1992 budget request and prior years appropriations for selected command, control, and communications programs. Our objectives were to identify potential reductions to the fiscal year 1992 budget request and potential rescissions to prior year appropriations. We briefed your staffs in May and August 1991 on the results of our work. Our review showed that schedule delays, program changes, and uncertainties have affected program funding requirements for fiscal year 1992. As shown in table 1, we identified 129 million in potential reductions for congressional consideration. Potential reductions in Army programs totaled 114.2 million. In addition, our review of Army-developed equipment being procured by the Special Operational Forces identified a potential reduction of 14.776 million in the Defense Agencies budget.
