Abstract : Overall, DOD has made a dedicated and reasonably successful effort to comply with the requirements of Public Law 97-86 with respect to submitting unit cost reports. Some reports, however, were lacking in completeness and accuracy. It is deemed that the time constraints imposed on program managers and service Secretaries when verifying and deciding before reporting on whether a unit cost breach has occurred could interfere with accurate reporting. Further, in the interest of improving the efficiency of reporting, consideration should be given to combining unit cost reports with a modified selected acquisition reporting system.
