The Air Force Audit Agency Can Be Made More Effective
FGMSD-78-4: Published: Nov 11, 1977. Publicly Released: Nov 11, 1977.
- Full Report:
The Air Force should make its internal audit stronger to keep top management better informed on how operations are conducted and how recommendations for improvements are carried out.
Because internal auditing is not high enough in the Air Force organizational structure, auditors do not have maximum independence in planning and conducting audits. Although Department of Defense policy requires all nonmilitary positions to be filled by civilians, the Audit Agency has about an equal number of military and civilian employees.
