Virtually all Department of Defense (DoD) weapon systems and equipment rely on power sources, such as batteries. This report determined: (1) DoD's approximate investment in power sources; (2) the extent to which DoD coordinates its power source investments; and (3) the extent to which DoD's policies facilitate the use of standard power sources. To address these objectives, the report obtained and analyzed DoD investment data, met with DoD officials and industry representatives, and attended DoD conferences aimed at facilitating power source coordination. Charts and tables. This is a print on d

In 2004, the DoD began implementing the National Security Personnel System (NSPS) -- a human capital system for DoD civilians. NSPS significantly redesigned the way DoD civilians are hired, compensated, and promoted. This report assessed: (1) the extent to which DoD has implemented certain internal safeguards to ensure the fairness, effectiveness, and credibility of NSPS, and monitored their implementation; and (2) how DoD civilian personnel perceive NSPS, and the actions DoD has taken to address those perceptions. The report analyzed relevant documents and employee survey results, interviewed

Reviews the cooperation between NASA & DoD since May 1996 to develop a national perspective on aerospace test facilities. Determines (1) the extent to which NASA/DoD working groups ( alliancesÓ) on major test facilities have been operating on a regular basis, (2) NASA's & DoD's actions in response to a future need to test an engine for new Air Force rockets, (3) whether NASA & DoD prepared a congressionally required joint plan on rocket propulsion test facilities, & (4) whether NASA & DoD are implementing a DoD assessment team's recommendation in March 1997 to jointly manage with NASA certain

DoD is one of the largest landholding agencies in the fed. govżt. with more than 577,500 facilities at 5,300 sites on over 32 million acres. The mgmt. of DoD-held real property is a high-risk area because of deteriorating facilities and problems with excess and underutilized property. To address these problems, DoD is: realigning and closing bases, demolishing facilities that are no longer needed, and privatizing housing. Here is an analysis of DoDżs use of its land use planning, and examines: (1) how DoD has used its authorities; (2) the reasons why DoD land, buildings, and facilities may a

The DoD consumes about 60% of all energy used at federal government facilities. To encourage an increased use of energy from renewable sources, such as solar and wind power, (1) DoD must consume at least 3% of its total electricity from renewable resources starting in FY 2007; (2) An amount equal to half of the statutorily required renewable energy be generated by sources placed into service in 1999 or later; and (3) At least 25% of electricity consumed by DoD come from renewable sources in FY 2025. This report examined: (1) DoD's progress toward these three key goals for consuming renewable e

The Dept. of Defense (DoD) reports data about the operational readiness of its forces. In 1999, Congress directed DoD to create a comprehensive readiness system with timely, objective, and accurate data. In response, DoD started to develop the Defense Readiness Reporting System (DRRS). After 7 years, DoD has incrementally fielded some capabilities, and, through FY 2008, reported obligating about $96.5 million. This report reviews the program including the extent that DoD has: (1) effectively managed and overseen DRRS acquisition and deployment; and (2) implemented features of DRRS consistent w

The DoD requires that its commun. systems be interoperable: that is, that they work together seamlessly so that the right info. gets to the right people at the right time. This report examines DoD's process for certifying & authorizing interoperabilityÓ (CAI); how the process was being applied, incl. whether contracting laws & reg's. have been violated; & the impact of DoD's appl'n. process on the competition. The report found that DoD does not have a well-defined process, incl. clear require., for CAI telecom switches. DoD has not applied its telecom switch certification & authorization proc
