U.S. Exports Subject to National Security Controls
NSIAD-84-137: Published: Jun 15, 1984. Publicly Released: Jun 15, 1984.
- Full Report:
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO discussed information concerning U.S. exports subject to national security controls.
GAO determined that the specific information requested was not available. However, GAO requested the Department of Commerce to develop information by country on the dollar value of license applications approved in 1983 for exports subject to national security controls. Based on those data, GAO calculated what percentage of total exports for 1983 was represented by those receiving approved licenses. GAO noted that the dollar value of the applications approved does not necessarily represent the value of what was actually exported in a given year.
