Unlike the Air Force, the Navy has not exercised control and accountability over millions of gallons of petroleum.

Petroleum safeguards were so poor and accountability practices so suspect at two Navy facilities that wholesale thefts had occurred. The Navy had not developed control procedures at the installation and unit level. At some activities visited, management guidelines were almost nonexistent, and at others, procedures were fragmented and incomplete. In contradistinction, the Air Force had a sound system of petroleum management at the installations surveyed; however, units at these installations did not always follow these procedures. The Navy's deficiencies, combined with similar shortcomings noted in an earlier study of the Army, show the need for establishing uniform guidelines for petroleum management.
