- Full Report:
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the Air Force Materiel Command's (AFMC) 14 major logistics system modernization projects, focusing on: (1) the status of those projects; (2) whether the Air Force has evaluated any benefits derived from the completed systems; and (3) the impact that the Department of Defense's Corporate Information Management Initiative (CIM) has had on those projects.
GAO found that: (1) AFMC spent $1 billion to modernize and consolidate its logistics management systems; (2) 7 of 14 systems were completed, at a cost of $261 million, 6 systems are still under development, and one system was terminated; (3) the Air Force has not measured the savings or extent of improvements attributable to the new systems; (4) it had previously found that the Air Force Automated Technical Order System was costly and ineffective, and should be discontinued; and (5) CIM has had little impact on AFMC modernization projects.
