Abstract : The Department of Defense (DOD) budgeted over $700 million for environmental compliance construction and repair projects to comply with environmental laws during fiscal years 1996-97. Of the total, $274 million was funded by military construction appropriations and most of the remainder by operation and maintenance appropriations. The Senate Report on the 1997 Military Construction Appropriation Act (Report 104-287, June 20, 1996) required us to review and make recommendations on DOD'S processes for programming environmental compliance construction projects and estimating future funding requirements and costs. As agreed with your offices, this report addresses environmental compliance projects funded as construction or repair and (1) identifies DOD'S criteria for determining which appropriation account is used for programming funds, (2) describes the process for programming funds, and (3) discusses reporting on future funding requirements.
