GAO obtained data on the status of the projects and funds of the Department of Defense's (DOD) Energy Conservation Investment Program. The data were obtained as part of a follow-up review of the actions taken by DOD on certain GAO recommendations concerning the Program.

The data indicate that the Military Services are using funds appropriated for the Program for other military construction projects that do not conserve energy. According to fund control officials, this occurs because the Services are permitted to reallocate funds from originally programmed projects to other projects when the original projects are canceled, deferred, reduced in scope, or completed.
