Summary
The Army is continually modifying its fielded equipment to add new capabilities or overcome safety and operational deficiencies. This report discusses the Army's management of its multibillion dollar modification work order (MWO) program, under which it upgrades fielded weapon systems and other equipment. Specifically, we determined (1) the availability of information needed by Army headquarters and field personnel to effectively oversee and manage the MWO program, (2) the availability of spare parts needed by personnel in the field to maintain modified equipment, and (3) field personnel's experiences in implementing the MWO program. Due to data limitations, we relied extensively on interviews with Army personnel at all levels and on our observations at field locations to obtain this information. We are addressing this report to you due to your oversight responsibilities for government management and/or readiness
