Pagination or Media Count:
In April 1991 the Chairman, Subcommittee on Defense, Senate Committee on Appropriations, requested that the General Accounting Office review the military services plans to develop separate automated recruiting systems, and Defenses application of CIM principles to these developments. On the basis of discussions with the Chairmans office, GAO agreed to determine whether the services autonomous development plans should be reviewed under the CIM initiative. Additionally, GAO agreed to compare the services system development activities to Defenses automated information system policies and procedures. To address our objectives, GAO interviewed Defense officials responsible for applying CIM to military personnel functions and systems. Included were officials from the offices of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence, and the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Force Management and Personnel. GAO reviewed Defense memoranda identifying plans to expand CIMS coverage in evaluations of additional functional areas, such as military recruiting. To obtain program status, history, and cost information, and to compare system development activities with required Defense and service policies and processes, GAO interviewed officials from the military services responsible for the automated information systems development. Further, GAO examined program development documentation and other reports summarizing or analyzing development events. KAR p. 15
