NSIAD-92-331BR: Published: Sep 25, 1992. Publicly Released: Oct 5, 1992.
- Full Report:
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the Air Force's aircraft procurement budget request for selected weapon systems for fiscal year 1993 and appropriations for the preceding 2 years to identify potential budget reductions and rescissions.
GAO found: (1) $541.5 million in potential budget reductions and rescissions for congressional consideration; (2) that, since the Air Force has reduced the number of KC-135 aircraft to be modified with new engines, its fiscal year 1993 budget request could be reduced by $186.7 million; and (3) an additional $354.8 million in fiscal year 1992 funds could be rescinded because the Air Force is not using them for the purposes for which Congress appropriated them.
