Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the comparison of the Department of Defense's (DOD) 5-Year Defense Program (FYDP) with the President's January 1990 defense budget estimates.

GAO found that the: (1) President's January 1990 budget submission showed budget reductions of $167 billion for 1990 through 1994; (2) FYDP and the President's January 1990 budget submission were consistent for 1990 and 1991; (3) FYDP did not reflect $93.1 billion of reductions included in the President's January 1990 budget submission for 1992 through 1994; (4) FYDP still included a $45-billion negative funding wedge and a $3.1-billion negative undistributed contingencies entry; (5) a total of $113.8 billion in programmatic reductions needed to be reflected in FYDP to bring it in line with the President's January 1990 budget submission; and (6) of the $113.8 billion in programmatic reductions not reflected in FYDP for fiscal years 1992 through 1994, $75.3 billion were in procurement accounts, $20 billion were in operations and maintenance accounts, and $13.4 billion were in research, development, test, and evaluation accounts.
