Abstract:

The primary audit objectives were to evaluate the Navy management of missile storage and to assess the need for planned construction of new explosive ordnance structures. In addition, we evaluated the use of special handling equipment required for each missile system and determined whether the Navy could achieve greater commonality in the equipment, thereby reducing costs. Also, we evaluated the consistency of procedures for testing and inspecting missiles that were reissued to the fleet. We also evaluated management controls related to those objectives.
