Abstract : In response to your requests and subsequent discussions with your office, we are providing responses to questions raised concerning the relocation of the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUwc)/Norfolk detachment from Norfolk, Virginia, to Newport, Rhode Island. Your concerns specifically related to whether the detachment's leasing of a new facility in the Norfolk area is in the best interest of U.S. taxpayers. We briefed your staff on November 30,1993, and February 25, March 23, and May 11, 1994, on the results of our work. These briefings and our earlier report resolved your concerns related to the move to Newport; however, you requested that we provide additional information on the requirement for the new facility in Suffolk, Virginia. This report documents the information presented in the briefings related to the new facility. (See app. I.)
