Summary
As of September 30, 1999, the Department of Defense reported 1 that it owned about $64 billion of secondary inventory 2 and that, of that amount, components have determined that about $9.4 billion is more economical to retain than to dispose of and possibly need to repurchase. We previously reported that $39.4 billion (about 60 percent) of the Department s $65.8 billion secondary inventory as of September 30, 1997, exceeded operating requirements and that the Department s cost of operations could be reduced by disposing of inventories if it was economical to do so. 3 Through disposal, the Department eliminates some storage costs and the government recoups a small fraction of an item s purchase price. However, if stock is disposed of before it is economical to do so, inadequate supplies of the item could reduce readiness and costly repurchases might be necessary
