DEFENSE MANAGEMENT: Opportunities to Reduce Corrosion Costs and Increase Readiness
The Department of Defense (DOD)maintains equipment and infrastructure worth billions of dollars in many environments where corrosion is causing military assets to deteriorate, shortening their useful life. The resulting increase in required repairs and replacements drives up costs and takes critical systems out of action, reducing mission readiness. GAO was asked to review military activities related to corrosion control. Specifically, this report examines the extent of the impact of corrosion on DOD and the military services and the extent of the effectiveness of DODs and the services approach to preventing and mitigating corrosion.
