Abstract:

The General Accounting Office GAO reviewed the Armys 1.55 billion program for acquiring the Intelligence Electronic Warfare Common Sensor IEWCS System. GAOs review focused on determining whether the Army was taking necessary measures to ensure that the system demonstrated acceptable performance before committing to its production. GAO conducted this review under our basic legislative responsibilities and are addressing this report to the committees of jurisdiction. The report identifies problems and calls for corrective action that the Department of Defense DOD has indicated an unwillingness to take. GAO is suggesting that Congress may wish to take the necessary action to ensure that the DOD addresses the problems GAO has identified.
