Abstract:

Introduction. Section 8023 of Public Law 103-139, DoD Appropriations Act, 1994, requires a certification process for automated information systems that are expected to exceed a 2 million threshold for development and modernization expenditures. Section 8023 requires senior functional managers to certify to the Assistant Secretary of Defense Command, Control, Communications, and Intelligence that functional requirements for automated information systems are valid and that the automated information systems do not unnecessarily duplicate other available or planned automated information systems. The primary audit objective was to evaluate the implementation of the automated information system certification process required by section 8023 of Public Law 103-139. We did not review the management control program applicable to the certification process because the provisions of section 8023 do not apply beyond FY 1994.
