Abstract : This report responds to a provision in the fiscal year 1990 and 1991 Defense Authorization Act, dated November 29, 1989, and a request by Congressman John J. LaFalce, dated November 2, 1989, that the General Accounting Office report on its review of the accuracy of the 1989 commercial activity study at Niagara Falls Air Force Reserve Base and whether the study was conducted in basically the same manner and considered similar cost factors as a commercial activity study at a similar installation. Regarding the accuracy of the study, GAO was asked to determine whether the contractor underestimated the number of personnel needed to perform the required tasks and whether the estimated unemployment compensation costs for federal workers expected to be displaced is an allowable addition to the contractor's costs.
