The Navy's fiscal year 1978 appropriation request to construct support facilities at Bangor, Washington, for Trident submarines was reviewed, including the $109.4 million for 14 different Trident-related construction projects and $11.5 million for increased municipal facilities and services resulting from the Trident support base.

The need for on-base retail facilities (estimated to cost $4.8 million) was questioned, since a substantial number of retail outlets currently exist close to the base. The Navy overstated its request by about $1.1 million, as the facilities requested exceed Defense Department and Navy space allowances. The Navy has shown no convincing economic reasons for not deferring funding of explosive handling wharf #2 (estimated cost $26.3 million); based on its scheduled use, this project could be deferred. A questionable note for postcontract award services overstated the request by about $0.9 million. About $1.7 million in prior funds had not been allocated to specific projects; these could be made available to this request. (Author/DJM)
