GAO: DoD Should Define Roles of Military Heads Under Strategic Planning Process

b-w-world-peopleThe Government Accountability Office has recommended the Defense Department define the role of chief military officers and deputy chief military officers in the militaryt’s strategic planning process.

According to a report published Wednesday GAO also suggested the alignment of DOD’s and military departments’ business transformation goals and objectives under that Agency Strategic Plan.

The report noted that 29 individuals have held CMO and DCMO roles within the DoD, U.S. Army, U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force from 2010 to 2016 to oversee business functions such as acquisitions and logistics.

Auditors said the military departments and DoD have faced challenges on retaining individuals in such positions because of a lack of alignment between the business transformation strategic planning efforts between the organizations.

DoD has also not aligned the military departments’ goals and objectives with the Pentagon’s Agency Strategic Plan, GAO added.
