Inventory Management: Problems in Accountability and Security of DoD Supply Inventories
Inventory-control programs are designed to assist management in maintaining the accuracy and compatibility of physical assets and their related custodial records at storage locations and the accountable records at ICPs. This accountability is essential to effective inventory management. Because of the continuous daily flow of equipment and supplies into and out of the DOD supply system through receipt and issue transactions, custodial and accountable records are continuously updated. These adjustments to the records provide numerous opportunities for errors to occur and, therefore, imbalances between actual assets and accountable records.
