The Government Accountability Office has released a report validating the cost analysis used in the Air Force's justification for proposing the cancellation of the C-130 Avionics Modernization Program.

The May 29 GAO report validated a separate study completed earlier this year by the Institute for Defense Analyses, which was used by the Air Force to support its desire to cancel C-130 AMP and pursue a lower-cost option -- a move that Congress has denied twice and appears poised to reject a third time based on legislation proposed by the House and Senate armed services committees and the House Appropriations defense subcommittee.
