GAO Sees Progress in DOD Contract Inventory
April 13, 2012
After a rough time gathering information on the military's services contracts, defense officials improved how they recorded their contracts for their fiscal 2010 report, auditors determined.
According to a recent report, the Government Accountability Office wrote that officials made a "significant step" toward a clearer picture of what was happening with their service contracts. As we reported earlier, GAO found that one consequence of DOD's lapses is that contractors are still given work that should be reserved for government employees.
Despite the improvement, DOD isn't in the clear yet in gathering accurate data, GAO wrote.
