- Full Report:
The Army has been spending millions of needless dollars for repair costs at its bases by neglecting to use a stock inventory control system and contracting for needless repairs. It has been a known problem since 1972. The Army recognizes the benefits of using available replacement parts but has taken no action to correct its procedures.
The Army has not developed effective procedures for: (1) identifying parts that are being repaired; (2) notifying supply depots that replacement parts are available; and (3) matching repair actions with available parts.
