Summary
The General Accounting Office (GAO) has updated a Military Readiness report through March 31, 1996, to determine if the data show significant changes. GAO reviewed readiness data for selected units participating in the Bosnia operation to see whether the operation has affected readiness. This report provides unclassified readiness information on the four military services. Specifically, it (1) assesses readiness trends of selected units from each service from April 1,1995, to March 31, 1996, with particular emphasis on units that reported degraded readiness during the prior period and (2) assesses readiness trends (for the period Oct. 1, 1995, to Mar. 31, 1996) for selected units that participated in the Bosnia operation. On June 26, 1996, GAO provided a classified briefing to the staff of the Subcommittee on Military Readiness, House Committee on National Security, on the results of this work. This letter summarizes the unclassified information presented in that briefing. The Status of Resources and Training System (SORTS) is the Department of Defense's (DOD) automated reporting system that identifies the current level of selected resources and training status of a unit-that is, its ability to undertake its wartime mission. Units report their overall readiness status as well as the status of personnel, equipment and supplies on hand, equipment condition, and training. The overall readiness status is generally reported at a level consistent with the lowest rated resource level, but commanders are allowed to subjectively upgrade or downgrade the overall rating. SORTS is an internal management tool used by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, the services, and the combatant commands
