Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the Department of Defense's efforts to clean up the Former Raritan Arsenal.

GAO found that: (1) the Army Corps of Engineers has awarded contracts to find and dispose of ordnance at the Raritan Arsenal, which are expected to be completed in mid-1993, but funding contraints may cause work to continue until 1995; (2) hazardous waste cleanup, which will take longer than the ordnance cleanup, is at a preliminary stage and must meet established standards; and (3) no standards exist for ordnance cleanup, and no agency is required to certify that the cleanup is complete.
