Potential Exists for Defense To Improve Productivity in Maintenance of Commercial-Type Vehicles

Gao ID: AFMD-83-22 July 11, 1983

GAO completed a followup review on the maintenance practices for commercial-type vehicles at the three military services.

GAO found that, although the services have made some improvements in their maintenance practices, most of the problems identified in an earlier report still exist. The most significant problems relate to overstaffing, repetitive repairs, and excessive vehicle downtime. GAO believes that productivity in vehicle maintenance activities can be much improved with little, if any, added administrative expense. The magnitude of Federal expenditures for vehicle support and the staffing and maintenance problems that have been identified repeatedly indicate an opportunity to save several million dollars annually.
