Abstract:

Given a large-scale organizational change initiative, such as the Department of Defenses DOD National Security Personnel System NSPS, is a substantial commitment that will take years to complete, it is important that DOD and Congress be kept informed of the full cost of implementing NSPS. Under the Comptroller Generals authority to conduct evaluations on his own initiative, GAO analyzed the extent to which DOD has 1 fully estimated total costs associated with the implementation of NSPS and 2 expended or obligated funds to design and implement NSPS through fiscal year 2006. GAO interviewed department officials and analyzed the NSPS Program Executive Offices PEO, and the military services and the Washington Headquarters Services hereafter referred to as the components cost estimates and reports of expended and obligated funds.
