GAO: Weapons Programs Need More Requirements Oversight

1 min read

A new Government Accountability Office review has found that the requirements oversight phase of the acquisition process is ill-timed, when put into practice, according to a Defense News report.

Ideally, JROC reviews are used to test alternatives to embarking on a new weapons program, Defense News reports.

“The report’s conclusions suggest that the review board sometimes acts more like a rubber stamp to the services’ plans rather than performing a real oversight role,” the Defense News article characterizes GAO’s report.
