Abstract:

GAO analyzed the Unit Status and Identity Report (UNITREP) system, described its functions, and evaluated how it fits into the overall military capability reporting system established by the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS).

In 1982, the Department of Defense established a standard definition of military capability which includes readiness as well as force structure, sustainability, and modernization. Combat readiness ratings (C-ratings) could then be assigned to each component of the military unit under study. GAO found that UNITREP, which is a management information system, is probably the most authoritative source for unit status information, and its C-ratings data are used routinely to track trends and deficiencies in the equipment, personnel, and training areas. Nevertheless, UNITREP does not provide sufficient detail or information on which to base specific corrective actions and serves basically to flag potential problems. Specifically, GAO found that UNITREP only reports on readiness, combat-type units, and selected resources, which most likely will not include consumable resources such as fuel and ammunition. Furthermore, UNITREP does not attempt to rate units against the requirements of specific operational plans or, except for the Navy, within mission areas. GAO believes that the system's usefulness or applicability during a crisis or mobilization may be limited because the communications system that supports it is unresponsive and vulnerable.
