GAO summarized the types of defense issues and questions that Congress will address over the next few years, and it discussed several of the completed and ongoing congressional studies on the issues.

GAO believes that the sizable increases in defense budgets over the past few years require additional efforts on the part of Department of Defense (DOD) officials to ensure that the funds are spent efficiently and effectively. To further this objective, DOD has developed specific directives and initiatives to enhance its internal controls. GAO considers this report as one means to assist Congress in identifying defense issues and questions which it may wish to address.
