DoD IG: Pentagon Components Need to Implement 58 Open Recommendations to Save $34B

The Defense Department’s inspector general estimates DoD will save $33.6 billion if it implements 58 out of 1,298 open recommendations issued to the department’s 46 components as of March 31.

The Pentagon agreed to carry out corrective measures on 1,251 open recommendations, DoD IG said in the redacted version of a report released Thursday.

The report also showed that DoD components and the inspector general’s office have not reached an agreement on a corrective action for 47 remaining open recommendations.

The summary of 288 audit and evaluation reports about DoD’s operations and programs also found 30 open recommendations that need utmost attention and would help the department reduce costs and build up the effectiveness of its operations once implemented.
