This report is the second of two audit reports addressing total asset visibility. This report discusses the effectiveness of the Joint Total Asset Visibility Program. The first report discusses the effectiveness of the DoD Total Asset Visibility Program goal as it relates to the Government Performance and Results Act. The Joint Total Asset Visibility Program is an automated information system that was designed to provide users with timely and accurate logistics information on the location, movement, status, and identity of Military units, personnel, equipment, and supplies. The Joint Total Asset Visibility Program does not process and create data it extracts common logistics data from DoD Component information systems and formats the extractions in standard reports for review and additional processing. The Joint Total Asset Visibility Program was developed to provide unified and joint task force commanders with asset visibility for Military units within their commands. Users access common databases managed by DoD Components that provide them with opportunities to reassign or redirect theater assets. Depending on data criticality, information stored in the databases are periodically updated through system interfaces.
