GAO reviewed the U.S. Transportation Command's efforts to develop the automatic data processing (ADP) applications of its Command, Control, Communications, and Computer Systems (C4S).

GAO found that the: (1) Command's mission is broader than that of the predecessor Joint Development Agency in that the Department of Defense added mobilization, employment, and sustainment of forces to the original deployment mission; and (2) Command intends to develop a draft transportation-oriented C4S plan by October 1988 and a final plan in 1989. GAO believes that the Command needs to: (1) ensure the transportation community's participation when determining changes to operational systems to meet the Command's data requirements; (2) work with the transportation community in developing and defending priorities for resources to fulfill the Command's information requirements; (3) work with the transportation community to plan for the most effective and efficient means to implement systems to fulfill the Command's mission needs; and (4) resolve the development problems of the Joint Operation Planning and Execution System, which the Command will use in the future.
