Abstract:

The General Accounting Office has made a review of selected activities in the management of food supply by the Military Subsistence Supply Agency, Chicago, Illinois, the Department of Defenses single manager for subsistence supply. In reviewing subsistence supply management, we concentrated on deficiencies in the systems for determining nonperishable subsistence requirements and for distributing perishables to customers which, in our opinion, materially affect the performance of the agencys mission. We did not make an over-all evaluation of subsistence supply management. Our review, completed in June I960, was made pursuant to the Budget and Accounting Act, 1921 31 U.S.C. 53, and the Accounting and Auditing Act of 1950 31 U.S.C. 67.
