Defense: Defense Distribution Centers

By minimizing unnecessary overlap and duplication and more efficiently using its U.S. distribution centers to store and process goods for troop support, such as clothing and weapon systems repair parts, the Department of Defense could potentially save approximately $527 million over 5 years.

Action:

GAO recommended that the Department Of Defense (DOD) assess and direct the implementation of actions, as appropriate, that can be taken using existing authorities to close, realign, or dispose of existing infrastructure to more efficiently use the department’s network of U.S. distribution centers.

Progress:

Pending
