This is the fifth in a series of reports the Inspector General of the Department of Defense is issuing that discusses accountability and control of materiel at DoD maintenance depots. The Joint Group on Depot Maintenance estimated the DoD depot maintenance expenditures to be about 15.3 billion for FY 2002. The Navy portion of that amount was about 6.8 billion. Close to 1.5 billion of the 6.8 billion was for operation of three Naval Air Depots. According to the Naval Air Depot, Jacksonville Comptrollers Office, the FY 2002 budget for the operation of the depot was about 700 million, and the value of the depot maintenance materiel inventory was about 89 million. Depot maintenance facilities need an effective inventory control system to ensure that an adequate supply of materiel is on hand to maintain efficient levels of operation and to meet the demands of customers. An effective system is also important to disclose defective and obsolete goods prevent loss through damage, pilferage, or waste and ensure the accuracy of inventory records. Through inventory control, materiel not needed for current requirements at a depot can be identified and made available for redistribution to meet other known requirements.
