GAO: DoD Needs to Assess FMS Performance Metric Data to Determine Unmet Goals

1 min read

The Government Accountability Office has called on the Defense Department to analyze its performance metric data on foreign military sales programs in order to determine the causes of unmet objectives.

GAO made the recommendation after it found that DoD still falls short of meeting the 85 percent goal for timeliness when it comes to sending a letter of offer and acceptance to the partner country for clearance, the office said in a report published Tuesday.

The report also showed that DoD takes more time to assess and approve FMS requests and does not collect data with regard to the delivery of FMS items or services to country recipients.

GAO also offered recommendations for the Defense Security Cooperation Agency that oversees FMS programs on behalf of DoD and these include the development of a workforce plan and workload measures as well as the need to facilitate data collection on the delivery of goods and services to partner countries.
