Summary
During the course of our review Defense changed its strategy for materiel management systems. We therefore refocused our review to include evaluating the risks associated with the new migration strategy and the extent to which it will facilitate improvement of DOD's materiel management operations. We reviewed DOD's directives, instructions, and guidance for developing and implementing systems under the CIM initiatives, as these projects relate to the materiel management business area. We interviewed officials responsible for the old and new materiel management strategies as well as those in charge of developmental testing and those who participated in the early deployment of some applications. We also analyzed system design documents, program assessments, acquisition methodologies, and strategies. Our audit was performed from January through May 1996 in accordance with generally accepted government auditing standards. We performed our work primarily at the offices of the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Logistics (DUSD(L)) in Washington D.C.; the Joint Logistics Systems Center (JLSC) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio; and the MMSS prototype site at the Marine Corps Logistics Base, Albany, Georgia. Appendix I details our scope and methodology. The Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Logistics provided written comments on a draft of this report. These comments are discussed at the end of this report and presented, along with our evaluation, in appendix II
