- Full Report:
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO commented on the use of 2-year research and development appropriations to pay for various tasks under a Navy cost reimbursement contract after the appropriation's expiration. GAO concluded that the Navy must take into account the nature of the work being performed, not the contract type, in determining whether to perform work after the appropriation expired.
