Abstract:

This document shows the results of the GAOs review of the Department of Defenses DOD selection of transportation migration systems. Specifically, it evaluates whether Defense made proper and cost-effective transportation migration system selections. The selection of migration systems is part of Defenses Corporate Information Management CIM initiative-a department-wide effort to improve operations and reduce costs by streamlining business processes, consolidating information systems, and standardizing and integrating data. For transportation, Defense plans to migrate from an inventory of about 130 systems. To date, 28 major migration systems have been selected, with additional minor selections still to be made.
