Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the Army's: (1) fiscal year (FY) 1993 budget requests for selected tracked and wheeled vehicle research, development, test, and evaluation program (RDT&E) and procurement items; and (2) execution of its FY 1992 appropriations for tracked and wheeled vehicles.

GAO found that the: (1) Army requested $122.8 million as part of its RDT&E budget request for FY 1993 for the engineering development of its line-of-sight antitank weapon (LOSAT); (2) Office of the Secretary of Defense rejected the LOSAT program's move from advanced development to engineering development as premature; (3) Army's FY 1993 budget could be reduced $122.8 million, and its FY 1992 appropriations could be reduced $31.1 million, since LOSAT is not proceeding to its engineering phase; and (4) Army could make a separate request for FY 1993 to continue LOSAT in advanced development. GAO also found that the: (1) Army requested $291.1 million for the family of medium tactical vehicles (FMTV); (2) Army has planned a two-step procurement of FMTV, with the second increment contract award to occur in December 1993; and (3) Army's FY 1993 budget request could be reduced $38.3 million, the cost of the second increment, since the award will not occur in FY 1993, which would comply with Army procurement guidance.
