Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the Coast Guard's major administrative and support functions, focusing on: (1) areas of possible budget savings; and (2) if additional opportunities for cost savings exist.

GAO noted that: (1) seven of the eight administrative and support functions GAO reviewed may have the potential to achieve cost savings and may merit further examination to determine the size and nature of these potential savings; (2) the Coast Guard is already considering some of the cost-saving opportunities but has taken no action on others; and (3) the one function GAO identified that has few additional possibilities, the housing function, already has major cost-saving initiatives under way that would eliminate much government-owned housing.
