Potential Reductions in Aircraft Programs
NSIAD-92-332BR: Published: Sep 29, 1992. Publicly Released: Sep 29, 1992.
- Full Report:
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO: (1) reviewed the Army's execution of its aircraft program appropriations for fiscal years 1991 and 1992; (2) reviewed the Army's execution of the aircraft portions of Operation Desert Storm supplemental appropriations for fiscal year (FY) 1992; (3) identified potential reductions to the Army's FY 1993 budget request; and (4) identified potential rescissions of prior years' appropriations.
GAO found that: (1) the Army could potentially reduce its FY 1993 budget request by $3.5 million because it overestimated its request for the Longbow program; and (2) Congress could rescind $6.8 million in FY 1992 appropriations and $3.1 million in FY 1991 appropriations because the Department of Defense did not transfer $6.8 million of the funds appropriated for the Apache helicopter program to the Army, and because the Army awarded contracts for the Black Hawk helicopter at $3.1 million less than expected.
