Notification of Review of Discretionary Funds Used for Congressionally Designated Projects

The objectives of the review are to determine the (1) dollar amount of "special interest" projects that were earmarked; (2) projects that were earmarked by law compared to those earmarked in committee reports; (3) criteria used to decide which projects were funded; (4) status, including cost estimates, obligations, and expenditures of the projects; and (5) to identify any project grants, announced before the 2000 election, that have been subsequently rescinded or redirected to other projects. This audit was requested by the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation.
