Description
 
Since the Sept. 2001 terrorist attacks, Congress has provided about $800 billion as of July 2008 to the Dept. of Defense (DoD) for military operations in support of the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT). GWOT budget requests have grown in scope and the amount requested has increased every year. DoD uses various processes and the Contingency Operations Support Tool (COST) to estimate costs for these operations and to develop budget requests. This report assessed: (1) how DoD uses COST and other processes to develop GWOT budget requests; and (2) what actions DoD has taken to ensure COST adheres to best practices for cost estimation. Includes recommendations. Charts and tables.
