Abstract : GAO reviewed unaccompanied enlisted personnel housing at nine installations and found that the military services were providing some accommodations which were below DOD's minimum standards of adequacy at seven installations, incurring unnecessary off-base housing costs, planning questionable housing projects at four installations, and modernizing facilities unnecessarily. GAO believes that DOD can improve the overall living conditions of its unaccompanied enlisted personnel and reduce the cost of providing adequate housing. GAO makes recommendations to assist in achieving these objectives.
