Since the early 1980s, the Air Force Materiel Command has spent about 1 billion on its modernization effort to replace 108 outdated logistics systems with 14 new ones. Of these 14, according to the Air Force, 6 are still under development, 1 has been canceled, and 7 have been delivered. We did not assess whether the delivered systems were cost effective. However, we previously reported that one system, delivered in 1987 at a cost of 21 million-8.9 million below estimate-was ineffective and should be discontinued. The Air Force itself has not thoroughly evaluated the benefits of any of the delivered systems and will have difficulty doing so because it has not established adequate performance measures. Further, Defense has not yet completed the analyses needed to evaluate ongoing logistics systems, select the most promising, and curtail the others. These analyses must be completed before Defense can determine if CIM will have an impact on the modernization projects.
