New GAO Report on Army Tactical Wheeled Vehicles

Bill Kobren

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) yesterday released a new report of interest to the community entitled “GAO-21-460 Tactical Wheeled Vehicles: Army Should Routinely Update Strategy and Improve Communication with Industry”.

According to the GAO, “the Army is working to modernize its fleet of Tactical Wheeled Vehicles (such as Humvees and heavy equipment transporters). These vehicles transport soldiers and materials like munitions, water, and fuel. The Army plans to issue a new fleet strategy in 2022, but hasn't accounted for how its ongoing initiatives, like research on ion batteries to electrify the fleet—could affect this strategy. The Army relies on industry to develop and produce these vehicles, but does not always effectively communicate its needs to companies. We recommended that the Army routinely update its strategy and improve communication with industry.”
