Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed categories of items that are excluded from the Department of Defense's (DOD) Supply System Inventory Report and the status of DOD efforts to establish a uniform system for inventory valuation.

GAO found that: (1) DOD excludes from reporting items that it does not consider to be in its supply system and have control over because the items have been issued to users; (2) for the September 1990 Supply System Inventory Report, DOD components used different methods for determining inventory values; and (3) to establish a uniform system for valuing inventory, DOD directed the military services to follow DOD Comptroller guidance for reporting in the September 1991 Supply System Inventory Report.
