Use of Transportation Technology by MTMC
NSIAD-85-67: Published: Apr 8, 1985. Publicly Released: Apr 8, 1985.
- Full Report:
GAO determined whether the Military Traffic Management Command (MTMC) adequately identified and used modern transportation technology to improve the Department of Defense's (DOD) transportation management, operations, and readiness.
GAO found that: (1) although MTMC normally uses modern transportation technology, it could improve its practices for keeping abreast of new transportation technology; (2) there is no MTMC focal point or formal system to collect, evaluate, use, and disseminate information on such technology; (3) MTMC relies on its contacts with industry representatives, in-house research efforts, and periodic involvement in national transportation industry meetings and seminars to obtain such information; and (4) MTMC officials are considering more formal relationships with organizations involved with transportation technology to better ensure use of relevant transportation technology.
