Abstract : As requested, we reviewed how the Army's Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program (CSEPP) funds about $281 million appropriated in fiscal years 1988 to 1994 were spent. We have previously reported problems the Army experienced in improving the emergency preparedness capabilities of local communities and the ineffectiveness of its management approach. The objectives of our current review are to (1) identify the purposes for which funds were allocated, (2) determine how funds were spent by states and counties associated with four chemical weapons storage sites, and (3) examine elements of CSEPP's financial reporting and internal control systems. jg p.2
