Abstract:

We made this audit in response to two anonymous DoD Hotline complaints containing 25 allegations the audit reviewed 20 allegations other DoD offices reviewed 5 allegations regarding the management of the Defense Mapping Agency DMA. DMAs mission is to produce and distribute mapping, charting, and geodesy products to all DoD Components. In 1982, DMA started developing the Digital Production System to produce mapping, charting, and geodetic products using digital imagery. With the Digital Production System, DMAs primary source material is digital data instead of film. Development and acquisition costs of the Digital Production System totaled 2.6 billion in November 1992. In addition, from FY 1989 through FY 1993, DMA spent 322 million to operate and maintain Digital Production System hardware and software and 113 million to develop and procure Digital Production System modifications and enhancements. DMA plans to spend 1.0 billion from FY 1994 through FY 1999 to operate and maintain the Digital Production System and to develop products and capabilities that may directly or indirectly affect the Digital Production System.
