Abstract:

We determined whether the DOD was effectively managing the operations and support phase of the acquisition process for body armor components. Specifically, we reviewed the storage, shipping, maintenance, repair, and inspection of DOD body armor components at 14 sites. We also reviewed the disposal of body armor components at two locations. This report is the first in a series of reports on body armor life cycle management and focuses on the U.S. Armys sustainment and disposal processes.
