Disposal of Excess Government-Owned Property in the Possession of Contractors
INSPECTOR GENERAL DEPT OF DEFENSE ARLINGTON VA
Pagination or Media Count:
This audit was initiated in response to allegations to the Defense Hotline that the Defense Contract Management Agency formerly the Defense Contract Management Command was falling short of meeting its Management Reform Memorandum 5 goal to dispose of 7 billion of excess Government-owned property by December 31, 1999. The allegation also stated that the Defense Contract Management Agency falsified property disposal reports by transferring the accountability of property from one contract to another and treating that action as a plant clearance disposal action. As of December 31, 1999, the Defense Contract Management Agency reported about 7.3 billion in disposals of excess Government-owned property. This report discusses the accuracy and reliability of the Defense Contract Management Agency reporting as it relates to Management Reform Memorandum 5 and the similar National Performance Review Goal 11b. The overall audit objective was to determine whether the Defense Contract Management Agency plant clearance actions comply with applicable DoD guidance and whether the Defense Contract Management Agency plant clearance cases actually resulted in the disposition of excess Government-owned property reported on the plant clearance actions. We also reviewed the management control program as it applied to the overall objective. See Appendix A for a discussion of the audit process and the review of the management control program.
