Abstract:

Since 1994, the Department of Defense DOD has been engaged in initiatives to reengineer the personal property program to simplify current processes, control program costs, ensure quality of service by adopting commercial business processes characteristic of world-class businesses, and relieve carriers of DOD-unique terms and conditions. We recently testified before the Military Readiness Subcommittee, House Armed Services Committee, on the results of the Armys pilot and DODs plans to evaluate the other three pilots that are planned or under way. The statement of managers in the conference report on the 1997 DOD Appropriations Act conference report directed us to validate the results and savings achieved from any personal property pilot program before DOD proposes further expansion of such programs. In January 1998, the Navy began a servicemember arranged move pilot that allows servicemembers to select a carrier and arrange their own moves. This report provides status information on the Navy pilot and our assessment of plans for evaluating the pilots results.
