Defense Logistics: Army Should Ensure New System Operates in All Situations and Soldiers Complete Training
The U.S. Army manages over $200 billion in equipment and parts. With a new online system, it anticipates better logistics management--tracking supplies, maintaining property accountability, and monitoring maintenance--and saving $12 billion through 2027. But the Army noted that the system is difficult to use and doesn't work in all combat situations (like remote locations without network access). Also, the Army couldn't confirm whether soldiers are taking all available training on the system. We recommended that the Army dedicate resources to develop the system's offline capability, and track whether soldiers are completing necessary training.
