- Full Report:
Data were provided on transportation costs for armed forces exchange goods following estimates made previously in June, 1976.
A completed analysis of billing records showed that during fiscal years 1973 through 1976 about $233 million in appropriated funds was used in transporting exchange goods. Of this amount, about $225 million was spent specifically for exchanges; i.e., transportation which was not required to move government cargo and for which the government was not otherwise obligated to pay.
