- Full Report:
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO surveyed the Department of Defense's (DOD) program for the construction of military hospital and medical facilities.
GAO noted that: (1) the policies and procedures used by DOD appeared adequate to ensure that proposed hospital construction projects were needed; (2) consideration was being given to the proper planning of the functional departments--surgical facilities, physical medicine and rehabilitation, administration--to be included in, and the medical services to be provided by, such hospitals; (3) DOD was drafting revised regulations incorporating its policies and procedures for developing and reviewing proposed military hospital construction projects; and (4) GAO believes that effective implementation of these regulations should assist in the processing of proposals for hospital construction through the required review levels on an orderly and timely basis.
