Defense IRM: Investments at Risk for DoD Computer Centers.
GENERAL ACCOUNTING OFFICE WASHINGTON DC ACCOUNTING AND INFORMATION MANAGEMENT DIV
Pagination or Media Count:
This report responds to your request that we review the Department of Defenses DoD plans to consolidate, outsource, and modernize its computer center operations and assess whether DoD has an effective framework in place for making and executing these decisions. DoD and the individual military services have consolidated a number of their computer centers in recent years and contracted with the private sector for information processing services that were previously performed in-house. These actions were part of an effort to find better and less costly ways of meeting Defense information processing needs. DoD has recognized that there are opportunities for further consolidations since, according to DoD reports, about 40 percent of its computer centers still fall well below government wide minimum processing capacity targets.
