In response to a congressional request, GAO provided a status report on the Department of Energy's (DOE) implementation of its nuclear waste program for the quarter ending June 30, 1986.

GAO found that: (1) in April 1986, the National Academy of Sciences determined that DOE satisfactorily evaluated and ranked the first nuclear waste repository sites; (2) in May 1986, DOE issued final environmental assessments for first-repository sites and recommended other sites; (3) DOE postponed site work on a second repository because of the progress in siting the first repository and the uncertainty over when and if a second repository might be needed; and (4) the Nuclear Waste Fund obligated $40 million of $166 million in fees and investment income for program activities, and its balance as of June 30, 1986 was $1.7 billion.
