GAO reviewed the risk assessment of the Navy and Air Force multiagency database machine acquisition. GAO found that the: (1) Navy did not formally notify the General Services Administration (GSA) of program changes, risking acquisition delays until GSA approved the changes; (2) Navy plans to monitor agencies' ordering activities by relying on contractor-prepared monthly production and delivery reports, which may not be timely enough to ensure that the contracts' maximum order quantities are not exceeded; (3) Air Force's transfer of a key program official during the acquisition cycle would have disrupted the continuity of the acquisition; and (4) the source selection evaluation board initially did not possess the right mix of skills to effectively evaluate proposals.
