Global War on Terrorism: DoD Should Consider All Funds Requested for the War When Determining Needs and Covering Expenses, Report to Congressional Committees [open pdf - 308KB]
To assist the Congress in its oversight role, GAO is undertaking a series of reviews on the costs of operations in support of the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT). In related work, GAO is raising concerns about the reliability of the Department of Defenses (DOD) reported cost data and therefore is unable to ensure that DoD's reported obligations for GWOT are complete, reliable, and accurate. In this report, GAO (1) identified funding for GWOT in fiscal years 2004 and 2005, (2) compared supplemental appropriations for GWOT in fiscal year 2004 to the military services' reported obligations, and (3) compared supplemental appropriations for GWOT in fiscal year 2005 to the military services' projected obligations.
