GAO reported on one deferral of fiscal year (FY) 1991 funds for international disaster assistance and seven deferrals of budget authority in the first special message for FY 1992.

GAO provided specific information on: (1) three of the deferrals which would be useful to Congress in examining messages, including information regarding one deferral that, due to an oversight, was not reported until September 30, 1991; and (2) a list of the deferrals as reported by the President. GAO found that the deferrals were in accordance with the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974.
