Military personnel progress made in implementing recommendations to reduce domestic violence, but further management action needed ( file )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Due to concerns about domestic violence in the military and its adverse effect on mission readiness, Congress required the Department of Defense (DoD) to establish a task force to assess the services' response to domestic violence and recommend improvements. The task force issued three reports containing 194 recommendations. The Fiscal Year 2004 National Defense Authorization Act required GAO to review DoD's progress in implementing the recommendations. This report discusses the following: (1) DoD's ability to report on domestic violence incidents and disciplinary actions; (2) the resources DoD has provided to implement the recommendations; and (3) DoD's specific actions to ensure victim confidentiality and the education of commanding officers, senior enlisted personnel, and chaplains. GAO also examined whether DoD has established an oversight framework to monitor implementation. GAO recommends that DoD take actions to address domestic violence data deficiencies, provide adequate personnel and a strategy for communicating its policy changes, maintain chaplain training data, and establish an oversight framework. DoD agreed with the thrust of GAO's recommendations, with the exception of one that dealt with policy that DoD stated involved privacy concerns
Acquisition Reform: Comparison of Army's Commercial Helicopter Buy and Private Sector Buys ( file )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The Congress, the executive branch's National Performance Review, and the Department of Defense (DOD) have emphasized the need for reforming the federal government's acquisition processes. The federal acquisition system has been described as complex, unwieldy, and in need of comprehensive reform. One key aspect of the current reforms is to use commercial procurement practices to buy commercial products. Army officials have cited the acquisition of the Army's New Training Helicopter (NTH) as an early example of success in streamlining its acquisition process to buy a commercial item. In this report, as a case study," we (1) compare this Army acquisition with acquisitions by two of the largest private sector purchasers of similar helicopters to determine key differences between these buys and the reasons for such differences (2) identify successes the Army achieved in streamlining the NTH acquisition, and (3) discuss potential improvements that could be achieved from acquisition reform efforts. Our comparison is not intended to suggest that the identified private sector processes would be appropriate for a government procurement. However, as the government moves to greater use of commercial practices to procure commercial items, a comparative analysis can be a helpful tool in gauging status and progress
