Summary
The Department of Defense wants to reduce and streamline infrastructure to help pay for the billions of dollars that DOD projects it will need for modern weapon systems. On February 10,1997, the General Accounting Office gave a briefing on infrastructure activities within DOD and its budget and program reviews of those activities. The briefing was based primarily on data included in DOD'S 1997 Future Years Defense Program (FYDP) because the 1998 FYDP was not available for our analysis. An objective of DOD's 1993 Report on the Bottom-Up Review was to identify potential infrastructure savings and to launch a long-term process to reduce and streamline DOD's infrastructure without harming readiness. The report stated that infrastructure activities accounted for $160 billion in fiscal year 1994, or about 60 percent of DOD'S total obligational authority. DOD defines infrastructure as those activities that provide support services to mission programs, such as combat forces, and primarily operate from fixed locations. DOD accounts for its infrastructure activities in eight categories: installation support; central training; central medical; central logistics; force management; acquisition infrastructure; central personnel; and central command, control, and communications. Between fiscal year 1997 and 2001, DOD planned to increase its procurement budget from $38.9 billion to $60.1 billion, primarily to buy modem weapon systems and upgrades to existing systems. DOD planned to fund that increase with a combination of increased defense budgets, savings from acquisition reform, and a reallocation of funds from infrastructure activities to procurement. The FYDP is an authoritative record of current and projected force structure, costs, and personnel levels that have been approved by the Secretary of Defense
