Since 2001, Congress has provided the Dept. of Defense (DOD) with about $808 billion in supplemental and annual appropriations, as of Sept. 2008, 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. As of Sept. 2008, Congress has appropriated a total of about $808 billion primarily for GWOT operations since 2001. Of that amount, about $187 billion has been provided for FY 2008. In addition, about $65.9 billion was appropriated in FY 2008 for FY 2009 but was not available for obligation in FY 2008. DOD will likely request additional funds for FY 2009. DOD has reported obligations of about $654.7 billion for military operations in support of the war from FYr 2001 through FY 2008. The $152.2 billion difference between DOD's appropriations and reported obligations can generally be attributed to multiyear funding for procurement; military construction; and research, devt., test, and evaluation from previous GWOT-related appropriations that have yet to be obligated; and obligations for non-DOD classified and other activities, which DOD considers to be non-GWOT related, that are not reported in DOD's cost-of-war reports. This difference also includes the $65.9 billion appropriated for FY 2009. As part of GAOís ongoing work, GAO is reviewing DOD's rationale for reporting its GWOT related obligations.
