Defense IRM: Poor Implementation of Management Controls Has Put Migration Strategy at Risk.
GENERAL ACCOUNTING OFFICE WASHINGTON DC ACCOUNTING AND INFORMATION MANAGEMENT DIV
Pagination or Media Count:
In 1989, the Department of Defense started its Corporate Information Management CIM initiative in an effort to save billions of dollars by streamlining operations and deploying standard information systems to support common business operations. However, 8 years after beginning CIM and making substantial investments, Defense has not met its savings goal because it has not fully implemented sound management practices to carry out this initiative. GAO placed the effort on its high-risk list in February 1995, in part because it found that CIM-related technology investments, which are expected to total billions of dollars each year, are vulnerable to waste and mismanagement.
