Abstract : When the Navy does not cancel invalid backorders, it wastes money buying, repairing, transporting, and storing parts it no longer needs. To ensure the prompt detection and cancellation of invalid backorders, the Department of Defense (DOD) has instituted a backorder validation program. We reviewed the Navy's management of the program and (1) assessed the adequacy of the validation practices for detecting invalid backorders and (2) determined if it was appropriate for the Navy to exempt certain categories of backorders from periodic validation.
