Abstract : Budgetary procedures cause reduction of test facility total obligation authority when a program is cancelled in the budget review. Users face loss of T and E funds on programs that slip. Adoption of a termination cost based on fixed costs should help. This study showed the possibility of inaccurate cost estimates due to poorly defined test requirements, use of inaccurate wage rates, ignoring cost growth, and poor organizational structure. Solution of related problems is discussed. (Modified author abstract)
