GAO: DoD Should Update Workload Shortfall Calculation Guidance, Offer Congress More Info

DoD logo resizeThe Government Accountability Office has recommended the Defense Department update guidance on the calculation of workload shortfalls and provide Congress with additional information on future reports to help bolster oversight.

A GAO report published Monday says DoD’s 2016 Biennial Core Report complied with two out of three Section 2464-required reporting elements and partially complied with the remaining element.

GAO noted that the report complied with core capability requirements and planned workload but failed to provide a detailed explanation or rationale for shortfalls and accompanying mitigation plans due to a lack of rationales and mitigation plans for all identified shortfalls.

Auditors added the armed services have not consistently calculated shortfalls because of a lack of guidance on how to accurately compute for shortfalls to support information in the Core Report.
