Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the Department of Defense's (DOD) Future Years Defense Program (FYDP) for fiscal year (FY) 1994, focusing on: (1) major planning assumptions underlying FYDP; and (2) the process DOD is using to develop the FY 1995 FYDP.

GAO found that: (1) the FY 1994 FYDP report contains only target defense budget totals for FY 1995 through FY 1999 and lacks the detailed program data required; (2) prior FYDP reports have contained more detailed information to evaluate DOD program and force level planning; (3) DOD did not include program data in its FY 1994 FYDP because available data were outdated and it did not develop its long-range defense spending plans for the new administration which it will use for its FY 1995 FYDP; (4) DOD is uncertain whether its FY 1995 FYDP development process will provide a thorough review of defense plans, since it has less time for FYDP review and will include only major programs issues in its program plans; and (5) the lack of a detailed service program review could further detach defense planning from the annual appropriations process.
