GAO provided information on its national security analysis issue area plan, focusing on the: (1) military services' roles and how they can best be accomplished; (2) effectiveness and affordability of the Department of Defense's (DOD) planned force structure; (3) extent to which planned defense budgets are affordable and consistent with national security priorities; and (4) extent to which the intelligence community is adequately supporting new missions.

GAO plans to: (1) evaluate the U.S. forces' changing roles in carrying out new missions; (2) identify opportunities for greater specialization or consolidation of key combat functions; (3) assess whether the DOD force structure can properly support warfighting requirements; (4) evaluate options for meeting changing forward presence requirements; (5) assess DOD nuclear forces requirements and evaluate alternative force structure options; (6) evaluate the affordability of proposed DOD programs; (7) assess whether DOD budgets are based on accurate data and realistic assumptions and consistent with DOD priorities; (8) determine whether unnecessary duplication exists among intelligence operations; (9) evaluate the accuracy of the estimates used to support force structure and weapon acquisitions; and (10) assess the intelligence agencies' roles in supporting new missions.
