As required by the Defense Procurement Reform Act of 1984, GAO evaluated the Secretary of Defense's plan to improve the Department of Defense's (DOD) technical data management system.

GAO found that the plan met the act's minimum requirements since it addressed procedures for: (1) indexing, storing, and updating items of technical data in a system; (2) developing a central index and locator system for technical data to the maximum practicable extent; and (3) ensuring that entitled parties have timely access to complete and accurate technical data. However, GAO believes that the plan did not adequately describe the scope and direction of the current DOD technical data improvement initiatives.
