GAO was asked to review the way in which the Panama Canal Commission determines return on the U.S. investment.

GAO found that the Panama Canal Act is unclear and needs to be changed to provide for: (1) computing the return on the total U.S. investment; (2) paying this return to the benefit of the United States; (3) preventing further erosion of the investment; and (4) recovering amounts that should have been paid in prior years.
