Abstract:

This report responds to your subcommittees request that we examine Department of Defense DOD policies and practices regarding cleanup of environmental contamination at government owned, contractor operated GOCO plants, as a follow up to our previous reports that showed inconsistent policies and practices on cost sharing. We reviewed nine higher-cost case studies at the Defense Logistics Agency DLA and the military services 1 to assess the consistency of cost-sharing practices across DOD and 2 to compare the service cleanup estimates against DODS. Specifically, we identified the actions taken and the types of arrangements for sharing cleanup costs between the government and other responsible parties, and examined site-specific cleanup cost data.
