OISS-80-1: Published: Jan 21, 1980. Publicly Released: Jan 21, 1980.
A summary is provided of conclusions and recommendations resulting from GAO audits and other review work in the Department of Defense. While the reports have previously brought the matters to the attention of Congress and departmental officials, the summary was compiled to assist congressional committees in their review of budget requests for fiscal year 1981.
Reports concerning national defense are divided into five sections: Department of Defense-Military, Military Assistance, Defense-Related Activities, Weapon Systems, Department of Defense-Procurement and Contracts, and Atomic Energy Defense Activities. Additional reports are included in the areas of: General Science, Space, and Technology; Natural Resources, Environment, and Energy; and Commerce and Transportation. Each summary provides the budget functions, concerned organizations, legislative authority, findings or conclusions and recommendations, appropriations information, and Appropriations Committee issues.
