Abstract : The Secretary of the Navy directed the naval supply centers to complete by December 1982 a special physical inventory effort to establish accurate inventory record baseline data. He also, directed the Navy Supply Systems Command to develop by April 1982 a plan of action to bring about permanent improvements in physical inventory controls and inventory record accuracy. The objectives, as requested by the Chairman of the Readiness Subcommitee, were to monitor the Navy's progress in developing and executing a plan of action to improve physical inventory controls and inventory record accuracy, investigate the magnitude, causes, and impact of physical inventory adjustments in the Army, Air Force, and DLA, and evaluate the adequacy of DOD's policy and procedures and efforts to improve them.
