B-199833: Published: Feb 2, 1982. Publicly Released: Feb 2, 1982.
- Full Report:
GAO asked the Navy for a formal briefing on the corrective actions it has taken as a result of an earlier report on the Navy Joint Uniform Military Pay System. The briefing revealed that major changes must be made to the system to eliminate the manual calculation of pay by local disbursing officers, reduce the override rate, improve the timeliness of input data affecting pay, and refine the accuracy of the master pay accounts. However, changes to correct these problems are not scheduled until 1985. Therefore, with major problems remaining unresolved, GAO withdrew its approval of the system.
