Use of Government-Owned Warehouses for Storage of Military Members' Household Goods

The Charleston Moving and Storage Company expressed concern that GAO was investigating the possibility of using government-owned warehouses rather than commercial warehouses for storing military members' household goods. GAO is not working in that area nor planning to review that matter in the near future. However, a January 1976 report noted potential savings that could be realized by making greater use of existing government-owned warehouses in the San Francisco and San Antonio areas. Both of these areas had excess warehouses and large concentrations of military personnel. The report pointed out that similar savings could be achieved at other locations with little or no effect on the quality of service.
