GAO reviewed the high reliability electronic parts testing and data requirements under the Department of Defense (DOD) standardization and specification program.

GAO was unable to obtain the information needed to identify significant numbers of the same or similar parts with different test and data requirements or the associated cost for such tests and data requirements. However, the information GAO was able to obtain through interviews with various officials and from an examination of documents convinced GAO that there are difficulties with the standardization and specification program in the electronic parts. GAO believes that DOD could use the information obtained in the standardization and specification program.
