Summary
On January 20, 2000, the Secretary of the Navy approved the selection of the Home Port Alliance (the Alliance), a nonprofit organization, to receive the U.S.S. New Jersey under the Navy's ship donation program. The organization had sought to obtain the ship for use as a floating museum to be moored in Camden, New Jersey The Secretary's decision represented the culmination of a competition between the Alliance and the U.S.S. New Jersey Battleship Commission (the Battleship Commission), another nonprofit organization, which had sought to obtain the ship for a proposed museum in Bayonne, New Jersey. After the Navy's decision, questions were raised concerning whether each competing organization had received equitable treatment in the selection process. At your request, we reviewed the selection process. This report addresses whether (1) the selection decision was credible and (2) opportunities exist to improve the selection process for future donations
