Abstract:

GAOs review of the Navys management of material in suspended, not ready for issue, status showed that improvements are needed to reduce the amount and age of this material. To improve the management of suspended material, we recommend that you 1 Initiate a one-time special project to have inventory control points and stockpoints determine the true condition of suspended material, make issuable all material that is needed, and purge from the supply system all material that cannot economically be made issuable or is no longer needed. 2 Modify the management information system used by the Naval Supply Systems Command, inventory control points and stockpoints so that it will receive summary data on the amount, age, and reasons material is suspended. Monitor this data to ensure compliance with DoD requirements. 3 Assess personnel resource allocations for the purpose of establishing a central control group at each inventory control point to provide oversight of suspended material. and 4 Provide more explicit guidance on who the inventory control point or stockpoint is responsible for resolving suspended material discrepancies.
