Abstract : Commanders and directors of engineering and housing of large CONUS installations often observe the handiwork of contractors and buildings and ground crews by making periodic surveillance flights over their real estate. At one installation a new building was discovered at a remote location, far from the main post, where a troop unit was performing a regularly assigned mission. The building had been built by the unit with misappropriated materials. At another installation a fire caused by faulty wiring resulted in unusually high dollar damage for the type building in which it occurred. Fire inspectors discovered that an unauthorized false ceiling had made the sprinkler system ineffective and the carpeting that was destroyed by water was not authorized in the first place. Both building improvements were so-called 'self-help.' Unfortunately, in many documented cases of regulatory and statutory violations, there is evidence of ignorance, misinterpretation, or illegal use of funds.
