Rollover to Zoom 


Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed excessive Navy progress payments to contractors associated with the A-12 Program, focusing on the adequacy of Department of Defense (DOD) procedures for reviewing contractors' requests for payment. GAO found that: (1) the administrative contract officers (ACO) monitoring the contracts reviewed were not in the best position to prevent overpayments, since they did not use available cost and performance data to identify cost overruns; and (2) the Defense Contract Management Command issued guidance requiring Defense Plant Representative Offices (DPRO) to use available cost and performance data in quarterly program assessments and annual progress payment reviews, but not as a part of monthly progress payment reviews.
