Department of Defense--Obligation of Chemical Weapons Demilitarization Funds
B-305494, Mar 27, 2006
In your letter of May 23, 2005, Congress asked us to monitor a potential impoundment of funds by the Department of Defense with regard to chemical weapons demilitarization activities at Blue Grass Army Depot, Kentucky, and Pueblo Depot, Colorado. Specifically, Congress asked GAO to monitor whether funds appropriated for Chemical Weapons Demilitarization at the Blue Grass and Pueblo sites are being properly obligated and whether the Department was impounding funds for chemical weapons demilitarization. GAO has verified that the Department obligated $103 million for chemical weapons demilitarization activities at Blue Grass and Pueblo. Furthermore, we have found no impoundment of funds occurring.
