GAO reviewed the Air Force's personnel data system, focusing on the reliability of data entered and being retained in the system.

GAO noted that: (1) during the review of the operation of the Air Force personnel data system for the period April through October 1967, it found that the system was not furnishing the Air Force with data of the reliability desired; (2) base-level records were inaccurate and certain types of source documents were missing; and (3) the reasons contributing to the inaccuracies were: (a) lack of adequate review procedures to ensure the accuracy of personnel information; (b) absence of standards for evaluating the reliability of system data; (c) ineffective guidance and instruction by higher levels of command; and (d) inadequate staffing and training of personnel.
