NSIAD-83-57: Published: Sep 30, 1983. Publicly Released: Sep 30, 1983.
- Full Report:
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed nine Department of Defense (DOD) multiyear procurements to determine whether fiscal year 1984 budget requests for these procurements were consistent with negotiated or proposed contract prices.
The budget requests for four of the procurements exceeded negotiated or proposed contract amounts by a total of $197.2 million. DOD officials attributed the differences to inflation, contract changes, and management reserves. The budget requests for the remainder of the procurements that were reviewed did not exceed the negotiated or proposed contract amounts.
