- Full Report:
GAO has completed a study of the receipt, storage, and issue of material at selected General Services Administration supply distributing facilities. While the logistical functions were generally well managed, GAO found that improvements were needed in the accuracy of stock locator systems, management controls over shelf life material, and security and housekeeping controls.
The weaknesses in locator accuracy and the shelf life program are a result of the failure to follow established procedures and enforce compliance thereof. GAO found that the established procedures generally were adequate, but were not properly implemented.
