Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the Navy's response to a congressional directive that it provide budget justifications for its flying hour and steaming day programs by relating those programs' objectives to proficiency and mission readiness.

GAO found that the Navy: (1) added three performance indicators to its steaming day budget to comply with the directive; (2) anticipated that it would incorporate performance indicators for its flying hour budget justifications in its fiscal year (FY) 1992 budget justification documents; (3) included revised estimates for FY 1990 steaming day indicators with the FY 1991 budget justifications, but did not explain the quantitative changes between budgeted and revised estimates; (4) had difficulty finalizing goals, since performance and readiness were also affected by factors other than the number and frequency of flying hours and steaming days; and (5) believes that such other factors as personnel, equipment, materiel, and maintenance affected proficiency and mission readiness.
