Because the District of Columbia does not have an economical and effective supply system, vital city services such as health care and education sometimes were hindered. Simultaneously, the departments accumulated much unneeded stock. A central management group is needed to establish and direct a citywide supply management program if the District is to improve its supply system.

Although the District has been told several times over the years to establish central management and controls over its supply activities, little or no progress has been made. Unneeded or overstocked items, valued at $6.9 million in current inventories, could be sold, returned, or used to reduce the inventory to the necessary minimum level. City services should not be disrupted due to this reduction, and the city could possibly save $7.1 million each year.
