Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the amount of funds the Department of Defense (DOD) budgeted for the testing and evaluation of major weapon system acquisitions for fiscal year (FY) 1989.

GAO found that: (1) the DOD FY 1989 budget for test and evaluation resources amounted to about $5 billion; (2) the Major Range and Test Facility Base accounted for $4.1 billion of those funds; (3) DOD did not aggregate all resources attributable to test and evaluation under its budgeting system; and (4) limitations and constraints made it difficult to accurately identify budget figures for all related test and evaluation resources, and DOD may have overstated or understated test and evaluation resources in certain categories.
