Management control breakdowns in DoDżs excess property reutilization program resulted in the sale of sensitive mil. property to the public through the Web site.

In 2008, a report was issued revealing gross mismanagement of property at the Indian Health Service (IHS). It found that 5,000 items with an acquisition value of $15.8 million were reported lost or stolen for FY 2004 through 2007. The report attributed the property mismanagement and waste to weak internal controls. Ten recommendations were made to IHS and IHS ultimately agreed to implement all of them. This report determines: (1) whether property loss, property theft, and wasteful spending continue at IHS; and (2) to what extent IHS made progress in implementing prior recommendations. Illustra
