GAO discussed the Department of Justice's (DOJ) overall management of its defense procurement fraud investigations. GAO noted that DOJ could not effectively oversee its decentralized operations, since it lacked: (1) complete and timely information on the number and status of defense procurement fraud referrals and cases; (2) data on attorney resources; (3) written management plans or update procedures for current and future efforts; and (4) a case weighting system to distinguish the different prosecutive efforts that different types of cases required. GAO believes that DOJ needs such information and data to: (1) improve its management of investigations; and (2) more effectively manage and use its scarce resources.
