We plan to begin the subject audit in August 2019. We are conducting this audit in response to allegations made to the DoD Hotline. The objective of this audit is to determine whether Navy officials corrected deficiencies identified in Report No. DODIG-2012-132, “Project Planning Resulted in Outstanding Building Deficiencies and Decreased Functionality of the Main Fire Station at Naval Station Great Lakes,” September 14, 2012. In addition, we will determine whether other building deficiencies exist and whether Navy Region Mid-Atlantic established oversight procedures to ensure that firefighters have access to safe and compliant facilities.
