Abstract : This report evaluates the military services and the Department of Defense 5 (DOD) fiscal year 1998 operation and maintenance (O&M) budget requests, which total about $94 billion. Our objective was to determine whether the O&M accounts should be funded in the amounts requested. We reviewed selected O&M activities managed by the Army, the Navy, the Air Force, and DOD at the headquarters level. The activities were selected for review because (1) O&M funding levels are increasing, (2) ongoing and issued reports by us and DOD audit agencies disclosed programmatic issues with O&M implications, or (3) congressional committees expressed interest.
