Summary
The Congress has been concerned with the military services' inventory management policies, procedures, and practices. Because of the continuing congressional interest, particularly that of the House Committee on Armed Services, the General Accounting Office, reviewed such policies, procedures, and practices at naval air stations. GAO evaluated whether (1) air station inventory records were accurate, (2) internal controls for ensuring accuracy were adequate, and (3) reported indicators of the accuracy of inventory records were providing adequate data to managers at higher echelons. The Navy has a total of 37 air stations. GAO conducted detailed audit work at three of the largest air stations and analyzed inventory statistics for 10 others. GAO found that air station inventory records have a high rate of error. Also, internal controls that would help ensure record accuracy are not in place and key management indicators show a picture of much more accurate inventory records than is the case. (KR)
