Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO examined the Department of Defense's (DOD) compliance with a provision of the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986 requiring it to make military resources available to drug law enforcement agencies.

GAO found that DOD: (1) prepared a list of available assistance and a detailed plan for providing this assistance to drug law enforcement agencies; (2) requested that the National Narcotics Border Interdiction System convene a conference of such agencies to reach agreement on the distribution of assistance; and (3) agreed to provide helicopters to the Coast Guard and mobile engineering support to the Drug Enforcement Administration.
