Abstract:

This is a follow-on audit to DoD IG Report No. DODIG-2014-048, XM25 Program Management for the Initial Production Decision Needs Improvement, March 21, 2014. We determined the impact of schedule delays on the initial production decision for the XM25 weapon system program from March 2014 to June 2016. Additionally, we determined whether the Army appropriately assessed the affordability of the XM25 program and implemented Better Buying Power initiatives. The XM25 is a semiautomatic, shoulder-fired weapon system that fires 25mm high-explosive, air-bursting ammunition to allow soldiers to fire at hidden enemy targets.
