GAO seeks more effort from Defense on modernization

Over the past six months, the Defense Department has made incremental strides in transforming its legacy and duplicative business systems by releasing another business enterprise architecture version, updating its enterprise transition plan and issuing a report to Congress.

Still, additional steps are needed to ensure DOD complies with provisions in the 2005 National Defense Authorization Act. In a report released yesterday, the Government Accountability Office found that the DOD's business systems modernization initiative took strategic steps, since a November 2005 report, to address 29 prior recommendations made by GAO to strengthen the management of the modernization effort. GAO found that 16 of the 29 recommendations have been implemented and 13 are in the process of being implemented.
