Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the military services' fiscal year 1987 temporary duty travel budget requests to determine why the Army and Air Force budgeted more on a per capita basis than the Navy and Marine Corps.

GAO found that the Army and Air Force had higher per capita bases because: (1) their personnel were more widely dispersed within the continental United States; (2) they assigned a higher percentage of personnel outside the continental United States; (3) they had a higher percentage of dependents eligible for reimbursed travel located outside the continental United States; and (4) they used differing categorizations of temporary duty costs.
