Abstract:

I am pleased to be here today to discuss inventory management issues in the Department of Defense DOD and our conclusion that the Congress needs to encourage DOD to stop buying items that it does not need or sooner than it needs them HO as to avoid having on hand large amounts of unrequired inventory. As I wrote to you on January 28, 1992, we believe the appropriations for DOD secondary items in fiscal year 1993 should be at least 5 billion less than the appropriations for fiscal year 1992. As you know, I recently discussed inventory management issues before the Senate Committee on Appropriations and Senate Committee on Armed Services. My testimony today will follow some of the same lines of my earlier testimonies, but it will specifically address our work on the longstanding problems with the requirements determination and ordering processes for DOD inventory.
