Summary
In response to the conference report on the Department of Defense (DOD) appropriations for fiscal year 1992 (H. Conf. Rept. 102-328, dated November 18,1991), we reviewed (1) the Army's 1989 and 1992 cost and operational effectiveness analyses for the integrated family of test equipment (IFTE), (2) the 1990 cost-benefit analysis for the electro-optic augmentation for IFTE, and (3) the supporting data for these analyses. Our objective was to determine if the analyses provided valid support for buying IFTE. IFTE is designed to be a general purpose automatic test equipment system capable of providing current and future direct support, general support and depot level maintenance requirements for Army electronic, missile, aircraft, and combat vehicles. The conference report specified that the IFTE program will be provided about $69 million in fiscal year 1992. However, the report also provided that the Army make no efforts to develop an electronic or electro-optical capability for the IFTE Base Shop Test Facility for use with the M-1 series Abrams Tank, the Bradley Fighting Vehicle, and the Tube-launched Optically-tracked Wire-guided (TOW) missile before we validated the IFTE cost and operational effectiveness analyses
