GAO provided information on its Defense Acquisitions issue area plan for fiscal years 1998 through 2000, focusing on: (1) the justification for systems; (2) development and acquisition of weapon and space systems; (3) the Department of Defense's and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's budgeting for their procurement and research, development, test, and evaluation accounts; (4) the management of acquisition process, including acquisition reform initiatives, reductions in acquisition infrastructure, and defense industry restructuring; and (5) international acquisition of and collaboration on major weapon systems.
