We plan to begin the subject audit immediately. Public Law 115-91, "National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018," section 2823, "Report on Design Errors and Omissions Related to Fort Bliss Hospital Replacement Project," December 12, 2017, requires the Inspector General of the Department of Defense to report on this construction project. Our objective is to determine whether the DoD effectively managed the Fort Bliss Hospital Replacement construction project. Specifically, we will review the requirements development, the design-bidbuild contract award processes, design suitability, and contractor performance. We will consider suggestions from management on additional or revised objectives.
