Abstract:

We performed this audit in response to the Chief Financial Officers Act of 1990, as amended by the Federal Financial Management Act of 1994, which requires DoD and other Government agencies to prepare consolidated financial statements. This audit supports our audit of the FY 2000 DoD Agency-Wide Financial Statements, specifically the line item for environmental liabilities. The Army, the Navy, and the General Accounting Office also issued audit reports related to the reliability, completeness, and supportability of environmental liabilities for FY 2000. Environmental liabilities included estimated amounts for future cleanup of contamination resulting from waste disposal methods, leaks, spills, and other past activity which have created a public health or environmental risk. The FY 2000 DoD Agency-Wide Financial Statements reported an environmental liability of 63.2 billion, which included 37.4 billion for accrued environmental restoration costs, and 25.8 billion for other disposal liabilities.
