- Full Report:
The report, "Questionable Practices of the Military Minor Construction Program," noted that the new legislative language in 10 U.S.C. 2674 is comparable to the language of existing Department of Defense (DOD) regulations. Previous recommendations regarding the administration of the program have not affected DOD compliance. The success of the new legislation depends on DOD administration of the new authority, especially amendments establishing congressional prenotification and defining the term "project." Further changes to the legislation would be premature until the effect of the amendments can be determined. The Committee should emphasize to DOD officials that correction of past practices requires clear administrative guidance, command emphasis, and a strong and continuing internal audit program.
