M1 Tank Engine Depot Maintenance Plan Needs Clarification

Gao ID: PLRD-83-57 March 24, 1983

GAO reviewed the Army's decision concerning where the M1 tank engine will be overhauled.

GAO found that there is a lack of coordination and control between the various Army organizations involved in planning and establishing the depot maintenance capability for the M1 turbine engine. This has resulted in a significant difference between the original plan proposed by the Army and endorsed by the Secretary of Defense and the action plan being followed by the depots to establish overhaul capability. Due to the differing interpretations of the Secretary of Defense's guidance and mandates, overhaul capability at the selected sites is being created which duplicates existing underutilized capability in the Department of Defense.
