Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO provided information on the Defense Department's budget requests for 13 missile systems, focusing on: (1) current budget requests; and (2) possible rescissions to selected segments of prior year appropriations, including the 1991 Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm supplemental appropriation.

GAO found that: (1) potential reductions and rescissions to 5 of 13 missile system programs total $47.4 million, including a reduction of $22.2 million in 2 missile systems for fiscal year (FY) 1993, rescissions to two FY 1992 missile systems totalling 17.8 million, and a supplemental appropriation rescission totalling $7.4 million; (2) reasons for reductions and rescissions include requirement reduction and reassessment, lower than anticipated costs, and greater availability of current information; and (3) concerns over 2 missile systems include the need for the Javelin Missile System and funds management for the Javelin and the Extended Range Interceptor Technology Missile System.
