Global War on Terrorism: Reported Obligations for the Department of Defense
Sharon L. Pickup (au)
Since 2001, Congress has provided the Dept. of Defense (DOD) with about $808 billion in supplemental and annual appropriations, as of March 2009, primarily for military operations in support of the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT). DOD's reported annual obligations for GWOT have shown a steady increase from about $0.2 billion in FY 2001 to about $162.4 billion in FY 2008. For FY 2009, Congress provided DOD with about $65.9 billion in supplemental appropriations for GWOT as of March 2009 and the President plans on requesting an additional $75.5 billion in supplemental appropriations for GWOT for the remainder of the fiscal year. A total of $31.0 billion has been obligated in the first quarter of FY 2009 through Dec. 2008. The U.S.' commitments to GWOT will likely involve the continued investment of significant resources, requiring decision makers to consider difficult trade-offs as the nation faces an increasing long-range fiscal challenge. The magnitude of future costs will depend on several direct and indirect cost variables and, in some cases, decisions that have not yet been made. DOD's future costs will likely be affected by the pace and duration of operations, the types of facilities needed to support troops overseas, redeployment plans, and the amount of equipment to be repaired or replaced. This report contains GAO’s analysis of DOD's reported obligations for military operations in support of GWOT through Dec. 2008. Specifically, GAO assessed (1) DOD's cumulative appropriations and reported obligations for military operations in support of GWOT and (2) DOD's FY 2009 reported obligations from Oct. 2008 through Dec. 2008, the latest data available for GWOT by military service and appropriation account.
