Abstract:

We determined whether Air Force personnel complied with the Berry Amendment footnote 1 and the Buy American Act footnote 2 when they purchased covered items such as food, clothing, tents, textiles, and hand or measuring tools. We performed this audit in response to Section 1601 of the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2014. We reviewed a nonstatistical sample of 54 contracts, valued at 19.3 million, out of 510 contracts, valued at 45.4 million, that were awarded from October 1, 2013, through May 15, 2015.
