Abstract:

We appreciate the opportunity to comment on Defenses on-going efforts to acquire and test the Composite Health Care System--commonly referred to as CHCS. Defense is now involved in the operational test and evaluation OTE phase and expects to complete this phase and be in a position to make a deployment decision in October 1990. My testimony today discusses some of the uncertainties Defense is facing in obtaining the information necessary to make a procurementdeployment decision. These uncertainties relate primarily to whether Defense 1 has allowed itself sufficient time to test and evaluate CHCS adequately and 2 can sufficiently justify the systems estimated 2 billion in benefits prior to its deployment decision. Today, we are issuing our report that discusses, in more detail, the results of our monitoring efforts
