- Full Report:
Statistics relating to several civil and defense agencies' accidents and related repair costs showed weaknesses in reporting procedures and claims processing. One agency reviewed was region 9 of the U.S. Forest Service.
Region 9 forest supervisors did not always file claims against third parties responsible for accident damage to government vehicles. As a result, regional safety and fiscal management offices did not have complete data on the number and cost of accidents.
