Abstract : Since our 1974 and earlier reports, the Air Force has modernized its equipment management system. The objectives of the modernized system are to maintain worldwide files of authorized and in-use equipment, keep track of gains and losses, and edit and validate all input data. While there have been several changes to the system, some previously noted weaknesses still limit assurance that requirements are based on accurate and complete information. Our objective was to assess Air Force actions to improve equipment management. To follow up on system weaknesses discussed in our prior reports, we identified changes made to the requirements computation system and data bank and evaluated the reconciliation of onhand equipment data.
