Summary
In fiscal year 1990, the Navy obligated $1.1 billion for depot-level repair of aircraft and ship components. At the request of the House Committee on Armed Services, GAO reviewed the Navy's repairable program to determine whether (1) unnecessary repairs were being made and (2) repair data was accurate. Although the Navy has policies in place to preclude unnecessary repairs, the inventory control points are not following these policies. The number of items that are excess to current needs are understated in the repair program, and many repairable items are not reviewed to determine whether they can be more economically replaced. As a result, the Navy is spending considerable sums to repair items it has an excess of or that could be replaced at less cost. In addition, much of the Navy's data used in managing the repair program is inaccurate. Reliance on inaccurate data frequently results in overestimation of item requirements and, ultimately, excess assets
