GAO: DoD Having Trouble Consolidating Contractor Inventory, May Keep Legacy Systems

GAOThe Government Accountability Office has released a report allowing the Defense Department to retain its four Contractor Manpower Reporting Application systems for the Army, Navy, Air Force and the rest of the DoD offices, FierceGovernmentIT reported Wednesday.

The DoD has been planning to implement a common system to track contractor manpower data across the department by fiscal 2015, writes Zach Rausnitz.

Rausnitz reports an office will be set up to support the centralization, but the DoD also said the effort is facing challenges due to a lack of funding and the logistics of the standardization of systems and processes.

The inventory of contractors is required by law and intended to aid workforce planning, according to Rausnitz.
