Abstract:

The Department of Defense DOD is required, by law, to maintain a core logistics capability that is government owned and government operated to meet contingency and other emergency requirements. Military depots play a key role in maintaining this core capability, although in recent years DOD has significantly increased its use of contractors. At the subcommittees request, GAO examined the extent to which 1 DOD has accurately assessed whether it has the required core capabilities in military depots and 2 DOD is preparing to support future core requirements for new and modified systems. GAO reviewed DODs biennial process for determining core capability requirements and the associated workloads for fielded systems. GAO also reviewed whether DOD had identified and established core capability in a timely manner for new and modified systems.
