Abstract:

As budgets decline, the Department of Defense DOD is faced with difficult decisions on how best to manage its 25 billion worth of test ranges. Over the last 3 years, DOD has been working on ways to achieve savings and cut costs through consolidation of test capabilities and streamlined management arrangements. These efforts have drawn the attention of several congressional committees and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, particularly regarding consolidating similar test range capabilities at fewer locations. The Chairman of the Subcommittee on Defense, Senate Committee on Appropriations, asked GAO to evaluate DODs progress in consolidation test range capabilities. This report discusses 1 the extent to which DOD achieved savings and benefits through its consolidation efforts and 2 the effectiveness of the interservice consolidation process known as Test and Evaluation Reliance
