Abstract : The F-16 multinational aircraft program is a multibillion dollar cooperative undertaking between the United States and four small North Atlantic Treaty Organization countries. The program is complicated by a requirement that the United States place contracts totaling about $1.6 billion (in January 1975 dollars) with contractors located in these countries--Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Norway. This report discusses the progress and major program concerns requiring further attention and resolution. The report contains recommendations to the Secretary of Defense designed to improve the F-16 program's management.
