Abstract:

This report contains a brief synopsis of some of the many and diverse subjects the Office of the Inspector General reviews, audits or investigates in a 6-month timeframe. We hope that this new format enables the reader to focus on what we see as a few of the key issues - or risks - the Department faces in managing the billions of dollars of taxpayer money it spends to equip, train and deploy Americas armed forces. In this report, we focus on 1 Financial Management, 2 Information Management and Technology, 3 The Defense infrastructure, 4 The Challenges of Acquisition Reform, 5 Improving Business Practices, 6 Reducing Weapon Systems Costs, and 7 Health Care Fraud. In addition, we continue to work on high profile issues, including a Attempting to locate missing Gulf War logs, b Reviewing DoD and military personnel assigned to Capitol Hill, c The Cuban shootdown of two unarmed civilian aircraft in international waters, d The School of the Americas, e Base closure costs and savings, and f Munitions scrap disposal safety.
