In response to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the San Antonio Air Logistics Center's procurement practices to determine whether it: (1) procured spare parts for the C-5B aircraft economically and according to Air Force policies and regulations; and (2) provided the reserve units scheduled to receive the C-5A aircraft with only necessary ground support equipment.
Recommendations for Executive Action

|Department of the Air Force||2. The Secretary of the Air Force should direct the Commander, Air Logistics Command, to take steps to ensure that spare parts are purchased directly from vendors when possible and more economical.|
