Special Access Document Control at Northrop's Advanced Systems Division Gao ID: NSIAD-87-79 June 23, 1987

In response to a congressional request, GAO reviewed Department of Defense (DOD) actions to ensure that the classified document control system for the Advanced Technology Bomber, a special-access program, properly accounts for and protects classified documents.

GAO found that: (1) the contractor's document control system provides accurate status information on its accountable classified documents; (2) the contractor and DOD periodically audit and inspect the document control system; and (3) although the contractor's document control system complies with DOD security requirements, the contractor needs to improve its investigation of missing items and destruction of unaccountable classified waste.


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.
