Abstract : This is a report on the accomplishments of the Department of Defense (DoD) auditors, inspectors and investigators achieved during the period April 1, 1995 to September 30, 1995. Some of the major accomplishments during the period follow. (1) Internal auditors and inspectors recommended that $9.6 billion be put to better use immediately or during the Future Years Defense Program period. During the report period, the DoD realized over $2.6 billion in savings by implementing audit and inspection recommendations. Also, internal auditors and inspectors continued to make improvements in productivity, including substantial reductions in audit cycle time and costs; devoted increased resources to a wide range of management advisory assistance assignments; and further improved the value of audits and reviews by increasing the involvement of senior managers in the planning process. (2) Contract auditors examined over $157 billion of incurred cost and contract proposals, took exception to over $19 billion and recommended that $6.2 billion be put to better use. The monetary benefits achieved during the period from completed contract actions were over $1.6 billion. (3) Criminal investigators continued to place emphasis on procurement and health care provider fraud. Overall, the DoD criminal investigators achieved over $453 million in monetary recoveries and over $36 million in seizures and recoveries of Government property.
