Consolidation Needed for Procurements of DoD H-60 Helicopter Spare Parts(Redacted)
We determined whether DoD was effectively managing the procurement of H-60 helicopter (H-60) spare parts. The Army, Navy, Air Force, and U.S. Special Operations Command all fly different versions of the H-60 for troop transport and personnel recovery. We reviewed H-60 spare parts procured on 2,136 DoD contracts and purchase orders from February 2015 through January 2016. During this time, DoD procured 10,047 unique spare parts. DoD spent at least $394.9 million on H-60 spare parts.
