As a preliminary response to a Congressman's request, data is provided on the spending patterns of eight Federal agencies and six object class categories for fiscal years 1977, 1978, and 1979. Dollar amounts and percentages were computed using figures contained in Treasury bulletins, but GAO did not verify the published data. Some of the amounts are questionable, so that an exercise of caution was advised for their use.
