The DoD Corporate Information Management CIM initiative provides the methods to achieve standardization, integration, and reduction in the number of automated information systems that DoD Components procure, modernize, and maintain. Reducing the number of systems is accomplished by identifying and consolidating systems that perform similar functions. The audit focused on applying the CIM initiative to three ultrahigh frequency band radios and their associated broadcasts that provide tactical intelligence information throughout the battlefield and around the world. Program costs for the radios total 297.5 million for FYs 1996 through 2000. The objective of the audit was to determine whether the U.S. Special Operations Command the Command acquisitions of intelligence systems and applications were economical and efficient as well as compatible and interoperable with the DoD Intelligence Information System architecture. We also determined whether the Command-acquired intelligence systems duplicated Military Department systems. Also, we reviewed the management controls at the Command as ,they related to our audit objectives.
