A reply was made to the Office of the County Counselor of Jackson County concerning their analysis of a GAO report on relocation of the Richards-Gebaur Air Force Base. In the analysis, it was claimed that the report did not address itself to Air Force estimates contained in an environmental impact statement.

Since this information was not available to GAO when the report was prepared, the review was limited to Air Force estimates contained in its draft statement of costs and savings for relocating the Air Force Communication Service Headquarters to Scott Air Force Base. Later estimates by the Air Force showed lower savings amounts and took into account factors brought to its attention in the GAO report. An analysis of these changes revealed that GAO had considered them in its review. Cost estimates included some elements which were not within the scope of the report, such as homeowners assistance, and some data not available at the time of the review. It was felt that certain costs could not be determined with accuracy until the realinement was completed. No basis was found for changing the report.
