ABSTRACT
An earlier GAO analysis of the Defense Department's (DOD) Future Years Defense Program (FYDP) for fiscal year 1998 found substantial risk that the program would not be executed as planned. According to DOD, the Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) proposed a more balanced, modern, and capable program that can be executed within currently proposed budgets. DOD planned to incorporate many of the details of the QDR blueprint into its fiscal year 1999 FYDP. This report (1) identifies the military's plans to address the financial and programmatic risks that the QDR found in DOD's program, (2) compares DOD's 1999 FYDP with its 1998 FYDP to identify major changes and adjustments to address these risk areas, and (3) explores whether there were risk areas in DOD's 1999 program.
