The Army, Navy, Air Force, and other Defense agencies held 60 conferences in Hawaii during fiscal year 1976, and the transition quarter ending September 30, 1976. Estimated transportation and per diem costs for the conferences totaled $492,400.

A lack of clear guidance in scheduling conferences may have led to unnecessary conference costs. Only the Navy has implemented a servicewide instruction for scheduling and approving conferences, although the Pacific Air Force Command has a comparable local instruction. None of the military activities in Hawaii were aware of Office of Management and Budget guidelines which require establishment procedures to reduce conference travel.
