  • GAO Reviews Air Force Report on GPS Acquisition (Oct 21) On October 17, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released its assessment of the Air Force's first quarterly report on GPS acquisition. The FY 2016 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) requires the Air Force to provide quarterly reports to GAO on GPS acquisition programs. It further directs GAO to brief the congressional defense committees on the Air Force's initial report. GAO found that the first Air Force report lacked key information needed to track the quarterly progress of GPS III, OCX, and military user equipment. GAO also made recommendations for improving the transparency and effectiveness of future quarterly reports.
