NSIAD-84-67: Published: Mar 5, 1984. Publicly Released: Mar 5, 1984.
- Full Report:
In response to a congressional request, GAO examined the validity of an employee's allegations of waste and mismanagement in the Army's Test, Measurement, and Diagnostic Equipment Support Group.
GAO and the Army believe the allegations, and the Army is trying to resolve them by: (1) deferring fiscal year 1985 and 1986 funding requests for calibration equipment and canceling requirements for ancillary equipment; (2) reassessing the need for addition calibration equipment and three laboratories; (3) consolidating two laboratories; (4) purging the inventory of the automotive test equipment which is being replaced by a new system; and (4) considering establishing calibration requirements based on equipment use.
