Abstract : The Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute greatly underutilizes its computer systems. It has not adequately planned for and justified them nor has it provided adequate staff to support its software requirements. The Institute also lacks proper controls over its computer maintenance contracts. Further, inventory records do not accurately account for the Institute's equipment assets, and time and attendance procedures have not been properly administered. GAO recommends ways for correcting each of these problems. (Author)
