Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO provided information on the cost and schedule for the Department of Energy's (DOE) Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) project, focusing on the: (1) time frame and basis of its data supporting its April 1992 testimony; and (2) status of its review and the present implementation status of the DOE system for managing the SSC project's cost and schedule.

GAO found that: (1) it based its April 1992 testimony on ongoing audit work that it started in December 1991; (2) DOE and its prime contractor still have not fully implemented a cost and schedule control system for the DOE SSC project; (3) without the complete system, the contractor lacks sufficient information to make a meaningful trend analysis of the project's overall costs and schedule, preventing DOE from making timely assessments of the project's problems and taking corrective action to reduce costs and time delays; and (4) although DOE and the prime contractor have made progress, the first meaningful trend analysis will not be available before June 1993.
