GAO reviewed the President's seventh special message for fiscal year (FY) 1986, specifically four deferrals affecting budget authority for the Departments of Energy (DOE) and Health and Human Service's (HHS).

GAO found that: (1) the Office of Management and Budget approved the withholding of the DOE funds in April 1986 but did not report them for two months because the Administration decided to reexamine each deferral; and (2) the HHS deferral was actually a rescission. GAO identified no new information, except as noted, that would be useful to Congress in its consideration of the President's proposals.
