Use of Enlisted Personnel as Drivers for Army Officers in Europe
LCD-78-241: Published: Jan 9, 1979. Publicly Released: Jan 9, 1979.
- Full Report:
In compliance with a congressional request, GAO reviewed Army operations to determine whether the Army has encouraged its officers stationed in Europe to personally drive administrative vehicles as part of the U-Drive-It Program.
The U-Drive-It policy has not been adequately emphasized by the military in Europe. Drivers have been assigned to officers even when cars have been provided by the program. It is recognized that some officers work while in transit and a chauffeur may be required. In many cases however, enlisted manpower could be better utilized.
