Abstract:

The Navy has noted that successful execution of its maritime strategy requires the acquisition of not only surface combatants, but also small boats. The Navy reported that it received about $135 million in fiscal year 2010-2012 base procurement funding for small boats. These small boats vary widely in the missions they perform, their sizes, and the approaches for their maintenance. The House Armed Services Committee directed the Navy in House Report 112-78 to conduct a study on strategies to reduce maintenance and repair costs associated with small boat storage and harboring and to submit a report to the House and Senate Armed Services Committees on its findings by October 31, 2011. The committee directed GAO to assess the Navy's report for completeness, including the methodology used in the Navy's analysis. For this report, GAO evaluated the extent to which (1) the Navy's report addressed the committee's direction and (2) the findings in the Navy's study are supported by the data and information examined. GAO analyzed study documents and the business case analysis, obtained and analyzed key documents, and interviewed cognizant officials. GAO recommends that the Navy collect and include more complete information when evaluating future investment decisions at individual locations. DOD concurred with the recommendation.
