Abstract:

In September 1988, we testified and reported on DODS conversion proposal and a matter concerning the Navys acquisition of a Standard Automated Financial System. In December 1988, we also reported on 1 DODS rationale and justification for the conversion, 2 employment and operational impacts, and 3 additional costs and savings involved in converting the Naval Avionics Center and the Naval Air Engineering Center. We found no overriding advantage to converting to another funding method therefore, we recommended that the Navy continue industrially funding the activities unless the need for a change could be clearly demonstrated. Our review of the proposed funding conversion at NCEL further supports our previously reported observations. At NCEL we found no evidence that DODS proposal to convert from industrial funding to an alternative funding method is advantageous.
