Abstract:

In response to your request, we have developed information on the extent to which legislative caps have affected executive compensation allowable under Department of Defense DOD contracts. Specifically, we obtained compensation costs from the Defense Contract Audit Agency DCAA for McDonnell Douglas Corporation for 1995, the latest year of a completed DCAA incurred cost audit. We also obtained from DCAA nine other contractors estimates of the impact of legislative compensation caps on their companies. On June 3, 1997, we briefed your staff on the results of our work. This report summarizes the information provided at that briefing.
