In response to a congressional request, GAO provided information on foreign travel expenditures of the Army Corps of Engineers' civil works employees to determine what procedures and controls the Corps uses.

GAO found that: (1) while nonreimbursable foreign travel expenditures increased between 1983 and 1985, they declined in 1986; (2) the Corps attributed this decline to the centralized approval methods it instituted in 1986; and (3) the Corps' current procedures and controls over foreign travel are consistent with federal travel regulations and are similar to those of other federal agencies.
