Observations on the Department of the Navy's Depot Capital Investment Program
GAO-10-726R: Published: Jun 14, 2010. Publicly Released: Jun 14, 2010.
This letter formally transmits briefing slides in response to your request. We were asked to determine to what extent the Department of the Navy complied with the requirement in Section 2476 of Title 10 of the United States Code to invest a total amount equal to not less than 6 percent of the average total combined workload funded at all the depots of the Department of the Navy for the preceding 3 fiscal years in the capital budgets of covered depots listed in the law. We presented this briefing to your staff on May 5, 2010, in which we concluded that the Department of the Navy complied with the minimum required depot capital investment. In addition, we have a related ongoing review of the condition of the public Naval shipyards, which are included under the Navy depots that receive capital investment funding.
Our analysis indicates that the Navy complied with the minimum capital investment requirement mandated by 10 U.S.C. 2476 for FYs 2007 through 2009 and is projected to meet the requirement for FY 2010.
