Each year the Department of Defense DOD provides material worth billions of dollars through its supply system to a large number of contractors to produce items, maintain them, or provide various services for the Armed Forces. Because contractors have had widespread access to the DOD supply system in the past, Senator John Glenn, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs, and Senator Pete Wilson requested that GAO examine DOD and service policies, procedures, and practices for providing and controlling government-furnished materialGFM. In this report, GAO focused on the U.S. Air Force and examined its compliance with requirements to justify and document decisions to provide material to contractors, the adequacy of management controls established to validate and approve contractor GFM requisitions, and the adequacy of government oversight over GFM in the possession of contractors.
