GAO reviewed the procedures the Air Force Logistics Command followed in procuring computer equipment and services for its Requirements Data Bank Program, which was designed to update automated logistics systems supporting Air Force activities.
Recommendations for Executive Action
|Department of Defense||1. The Secretary of Defense should revise the "DOD-Wide Guidance for Acquiring Mission Critical Computer Resources Under 10 U.S.C. 2315 (Armed Services Procurement Act)" to be more explicit in defining functional classifications and applications that are exempted by the Warner Amendment.|
|Department of Defense||2. The Secretary of Defense should direct the Secretary of the Air Force to submit an agency procurement request for the Requirements Data Bank Program to the Administrator of General Services. The Air Force should submit the request before carrying out the next contract option for additional computer equipment and services. For the other programs in the Air Force's Logistics Management Systems Modernization Program, the Secretary of Defense should direct the Secretary of the Air Force to submit an agency procurement request before taking any further procurement actions.|
