Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO provided information on its review of the Department of Energy's (DOE) fiscal year (FY) 1999 budget request, focusing on operating funds for four major DOE program areas: (1) Energy Efficiency; (2) Energy Research; (3) Fossil Energy; and (4) Nuclear Energy.

GAO noted that: (1) these four program areas may have from $575 million to $682 million in potentially available carryover balances for operating funds at the beginning of FY 1999; (2) over 80 percent of these balances are accounted for by the Energy Efficiency (conservation) and Fossil Energy program areas; (3) DOE has proposed using $24.6 million in carryover balances from the four program areas to offset its FY 1999 budget request; and (4) GAO believes that the carryover balances it identified represent a starting point from which to identify amounts that could be used to offset DOE's budget.
