Performance Reporting, Cyber and Supply Chain Planning

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) yesterday issued a new report of interest to the defense acquisition workforce entitled “GAO-22-105330 Business Systems: DOD Needs to Improve Performance Reporting and Cybersecurity and Supply Chain Planning”.

According to the GAO, “the Department of Defense requested about $38.6 billion for FY 2022 for its unclassified information technology, such as communications systems and business systems. We reviewed the performance of DOD's 25 major IT business programs, management of cybersecurity and supply chain risks, and more. Among other things, we found:
  • 19 of the 25 programs did not fully report data measuring progress on system performance
  • Programs reported progress on only 77 of 172 performance targets
  • 15 of the 25 reported having an approved cybersecurity strategy and provided a copy to validate

(The GAO’s) recommendations address these and other issues.”
