- Full Report:
The U.S. Army in Europe uses various German Government facilities under the Status of Forces Agreement and spent $504 million in FY 1975 to operate and maintain these facilities.
The Army's management system in Europe produced inaccurate and incomplete facility inventory data, and efforts at improvement were not successful. Over $16 million could have been saved in 1975 if Army personnel had used available quarters rather than off-post quarters. Many facilities were underutilized, and little was done to consolidate activities and return facilities to Germany. The Army Audit Agency estimated that such action would save about $28 million annually.
