Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO examined the military services' justification for their fiscal year 1985 ammunition appropriation requests which totalled $4.9 billion, and the Army's $302.2 million request for the production base.

GAO found that, after reviewing significant appropriations requests, most ammunition items were adequately justified. However, $627.6 million of the services' ammunition requests and $97 million of the Army's production base request were questionable. Subsequent to these findings, the Department of Defense reduced the Army, Navy, and Air Force appropriation requests by $185.1 million, $62 million, and $205 million, respectively. Several of the reductions coincided with items that reportedly were not justified.
