Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed: (1) the Navy's strategy for maintaining its nuclear-powered attack submarine (SSN) force structure; and (2) less costly alternatives for maintaining the SSN force.
Matter for Congressional Consideration
|Congress should consider these analyses of less costly alternatives as it deliberates SSN force structure and acquisition issues.||Congress has not debated submarine force structure in this session. Debate on funding a third Seawolf submarine included references to information contained in the report and in later GAO testimony.|
