Abstract : Congress has consistently supported Army requests for military training funds-commonly referred to as operating tempo funds-to keep Army forces at a high level of combat readiness. However, as a result of reports that scheduled training exercises had been canceled, the former chairman asked that we determine whether (1) operating tempo funds were spent for purposes other than training and (2) the operating tempo funds requested in the Army's congressional budget submissions were consistent with the amounts needed for training exercises necessary to meet its readiness objectives. jg p.2
