GAO prepared a study to: (1) present background information on the principal Department of Defense (DOD) audit and investigative organizations; (2) summarize findings of earlier reports on these organizations; and (3) discuss the merits of having a statutory inspector general in DOD modeled after those in the civil agencies. The study supplements many oral briefings GAO has given to congressional staffs about the various DOD audit and investigative organizations. Legislation now pending before Congress would create an inspector general in DOD; consolidate some of the existing DOD audit, inspection, and investigative units; and give them more independence and authority.
