Abstract:

We are conducting this audit in response to a congressional request to update our previous audit work. DoD reported cost decreases totaling 680.9 million for four of six enterprise resource planning ERP systems and cost increases of 298.9 million for two systems. The DoD also reported schedule delays for three of the six ERP systems since previously reported in report DODIG-2012-111, Enterprise Resource Planning Systems Schedule Delays and Reengineering Weaknesses Increase Risks to DoDs Auditability Goals, July 13, 2012. In addition, DoD management has identified corrective actions taken to ensure the integrity of business process re-engineering BPR assessments submitted for DoD ERP programs. DoD management identified plans to ensure previously reported issues were addressed. We considered management comments on a discussion draft of this report in preparing the final report. Our overall objective was to determine whether additional ERP system cost increases and schedule delays have occurred since our audit report, DODIG-2012-111. We also determined whether DoD has implemented corrective actions to ensure the integrity of business process reengineering assessments submitted for DoD ERP systems.
