Abstract:

Our overall objective was to evaluate Naval Air Systems Command acquisition management of the CH-53K program. This report is the second in a series of audits on the Marine Corps CH-53K helicopter program. For this audit we determined whether Naval Air Systems Command was effectively managing and developing the CH-53K helicopter program for low-rate initial production. The estimated total life-cycle cost of the CH-53K program is 106.7 billion, and the program is expected to begin full-rate production in September 2019.
