Congressional Committees: 

Subject: Status of GAO Recommendations to the Department of Defense 
(Fiscal Years 2001-2008): 

Section 502 of the Concurrent Resolution on the Budget for Fiscal Year 
2010[Footnote 1] required us to report to the appropriate congressional 
committees by December 31, 2009, regarding the Department of Defense’s 
(DOD) progress in implementing GAO’s audit recommendations. From fiscal 
years 2001 through 2008, we issued 743 reports to DOD or its components 
that included 3,099 recommendations.[Footnote 2] By law, agencies, 
including DOD, are required to submit written statements to Congress 
explaining actions taken in response to recommendations we have made. 
[Footnote 3] We follow up on the implementation status of each 
recommendation at least annually after report issuance to determine 
whether DOD has instituted sufficient corrective actions. This report, 
which responds to this mandate, contains the results of our analysis on 
the implementation status of the 3,099 recommendations. 

Scope and Methodology: 

To conduct our work, we analyzed information on the implementation 
status of recommendations made to DOD from our reports issued during 
fiscal years 2001 through 2008 at the request of the committee offices. 
The implementation status for each recommendation falls into one of 
three categories: recommendations that remain open, recommendations 
that are closed and implemented, and recommendations that are closed 
but not implemented. The results reflect information from our 
Engagement Results database as of September 30, 2009. As noted in our 
Performance and Accountability Report for Fiscal Year 2009,[Footnote 4] 
our performance reporting is reliable—transactions and other data that 
support reported performance measures are properly recorded, processed, 
and summarized to permit the preparation of performance information 
consistent with the criteria set forth in the Government Performance 
and Results Act of 1993[Footnote 5] and related Office of Management 
and Budget guidance. We conducted our work from September to December 
2009 in accordance with all sections of GAO’s Quality Assurance 
Framework that are relevant to our objectives. The framework requires 
that we plan and perform the engagement to obtain sufficient and 
appropriate evidence to meet our stated objectives and to discuss any 
limitations in our work. We believe that the information and data 
obtained, and the analysis conducted, provide a reasonable basis for 
any findings and conclusions in this product. 

Background: 

For GAO products that contain recommendations, we update the status of 
these recommendations at least annually after report issuance and 
usually by the end of the fiscal year. To accomplish this, our staff 
may interview agency officials, obtain agency documents, access agency 
databases, or obtain information from an agency's inspector general. 
Recommendations that are reported as implemented are reviewed by a 
senior executive and our Office of Quality and Continuous Improvement. 
It is important for us to keep this recommendation information updated 
since Congress, federal agencies, and the public have online access to 
our report, Status of Open Recommendations, which is based on 
information from our Recommendations Follow-Up application.[Footnote 6] 
Congress uses the information to prepare for hearings and budget 
deliberations, and agencies use it to track the status of 
recommendations targeted to their agency. This database can be searched 
by congressional requester, by subject matter, or in various other ways 
such as target agency or product title. We also use this information to 
measure the implementation rate of our recommendations. 

There are three options for recording the implementation status of a 
recommendation: open, closed-implemented, and closed–not implemented. A 
recommendation will stay open when action has not been taken but may be 
taken in the future, action is in the planning stage, or action has 
been taken on only part of the recommendation. A recommendation will be 
listed as closed-implemented when the action is fully implemented or 
action has been taken that essentially meets the recommendation’s 
intent (i.e., the action meets the spirit—rather than the letter—of the 
recommendation) or all parts of the recommendation have been 
implemented. A recommendation will be listed as closed–not implemented 
when either DOD has indicated that it has no intention of implementing 
the recommendation or circumstances have changed and the recommendation 
is no longer valid. 

GAO Recommendations to DOD and Their Implementation Status: 

During fiscal years 2001 through 2008, we issued 743 reports to DOD 
that included a total of 3,099 recommendations. As of September 30, 
2009, 841 or 27 percent of these recommendations are reported as open, 
1,878 or 61 percent are closed-implemented, and 380 or 12 percent are 
closed–not implemented. Consistent with past experience that shows it 
takes agencies some time to implement recommendations, we found most 
recommendations from fiscal year 2001 have been implemented while most 
recommendations from fiscal year 2008 remain open. For example, of the 
292 recommendations made to DOD in fiscal year 2001, 234 
recommendations or 80 percent have been implemented while 12, or 4 
percent, remain open. The remaining 46 recommendations or 16 percent 
are closed but not implemented. Conversely, for the 381 recommendations 
we made to DOD in fiscal year 2008, 18 recommendations or 5 percent 
have been implemented while 352 recommendations or 92 percent are open. 
The remaining 11 recommendation or 3 percent are closed but not 
implemented. Enclosure I lists each report issued from fiscal year 2001 
through fiscal year 2008 that included recommendations for DOD or its 
components and the implementation status of those recommendations.
Table 1 summarizes the number of the recommendations made to DOD in 
fiscal year 2001 through fiscal year 2008 and their implementation 
status by number and percentage.
