Allegations Concerning Irregularities in Maintenance and Repair Work at Fort Lee and Fort Belvoir, VA
PLRD-83-68: Published: Apr 20, 1983. Publicly Released: Apr 20, 1983.
- Full Report:
GAO reviewed allegations of irregularities on three Army maintenance and repair projects.
GAO found that the three projects in question were performed by the same firm. The Army Corps of Engineers' representatives and the facilities engineers at both bases felt that the work was satisfactory and that the installation and subsequent reinstallation of windows and doors was not due to poor contractor performance or poor workmanship. GAO found that the installation and reinstallation of the doors and windows on these projects resulted from on the way different projects were planned and funded by the Army. Some of the doors and windows under study had to be removed and reinstalled, because the Army decided to do additional work after the original installation. GAO stated that the source and amount of funds received, the timeliness of the receipt of funds, and the ongoing work at the time of receipt can and do cause maintenance planning and scheduling problems.
