GAO Looks at DoD Inspector General Redundancy

1 min read

The Government Accountability Office has reviewed the redundancy of activities, including human resources and public affairs, across six inspector general offices within the Department of Defense, GAO said Friday.

GAO is working to determine whether IG offices of the Department of the Navy, U.S. Southern Command, Defense Logistics Agency, Defense Contract Management Agency and Defense Media Activity had cases of fragmentation, overlap or duplication. The agency found that these offices did not exhibit significant examples of said issues.

Majority of the six offices use shared or department-wide resources to avoid such cases. GAO made seven recommendations to help DoD further prevent cases of these issues across IG offices. These recommendations include efforts to improve policy on DoD's chief management officer and better support cross-functional activities.
