[Technical Report, Congressional Testimony]
United States Government Accountability Office
Pagination or Media Count:
In July 2004, GAO testified before this Subcommittee on the impact and causes of financial and related business weaknesses on the Department of Defenses DODoperations and the status of DOD reform efforts. The report released today highlights that DOD still does not have management controls to ensure that its business systems investments are directed towards integrated corporate system solutions. GAOs reports continue to show that fundamental problems with DODs financial management and related business operations result in substantial waste and inefficiency, adversely impact mission performance, and result in a lack of adequate accountability across all major business areas. Over the years, DOD leaders attempted to address these weaknesses and transform the department. For years, GAO has reported that DOD is challenged inits efforts to effect fundamental financial and business management reform and GAOs ongoing work continues to raise serious questions about DODs chances of success.
