Abstract:

Our 1994 work raised questions about the level of oversight pertaining to WHCAs budget justifications and procurement activities, including a recommendation made by a 1987 task force to improve oversight of WHCAs procurement and management that WHCA had not implemented. Our work to that point convinced us that there was reason to focus on the apparently minimal oversight of WHCA by DISA. However, during a January 1995 meeting with DOD and White House staff, White House Counsel staff indicated that we would not be provided the information needed to further pursue these issues. This prompted meetings involving the requester, the White House, DOD, and us, which resulted in the initiation of the DOD Inspector Generals review.
