Fort Carson's Yearend Obligations and Closeout Procedures

Gao ID: DRO-83-01 February 9, 1983

GAO reviewed the yearend obligations and closeout procedures of Fort Carson to report on its compliance with the Supplemental Appropriations Act of 1955.

GAO found two problem areas which require corrective action. The first concerns nearly $1 million in materials overages, resulting from: (1) disregarded 1981 undelivered orders when ordering the same items on 1982 bypass of the Army stock fund; and (2) failure to include, in their requirements calculations, some items stored at the Pueblo Army Depot. Other Army installation's timely receipt of these excess items could reduce their future inventory orders. The second problem area resulted because personnel held most September 1982 turn-ins and did not process them until October. GAO believes that a control procedure is needed to minimize the potential risk of an activity delaying a turn-in to extend fiscal year funds.


Our recommendations from this work are listed below with a Contact for more information. Status will change from "In process" to "Open," "Closed - implemented," or "Closed - not implemented" based on our follow up work.
