Abstract:

The audit was performed in response to a joint inquiry from Senators Paul Simon, Charles E. Grassley, Carol Moseley-Braun, and Tom Harkin, as well as Congressmen Lane Evans and Jim Leach. The inquiry resulted from constituent allegations that the Program Executive Officer for Armored Systems Modernization improperly communicated Government information on Army procurement of gun mounts for the MlA2 tank. The allegations stated that information was communicated to the General Dynamics Land Systems Division General Dynamics, the prime contractor for the MlA2 tank upgrade program, and operator of the Detroit Army Tank Plant. On June 3, 1996, we advised members of Congress and the Secretary of the Army that the audit did not substantiate the allegations. This report discusses Army plans for the future production of gun mounts as well as other components for the MlA2 tank upgrade program.
