Publicly Released: May 25, 2023
The purpose of this management advisory is to inform the Department of the Army, Army Materiel Command, Army Sustainment Command, and U.S. European Command officials responsible for the designation and transfer of military equipment to the Ukrainian Armed Forces of concerns for the readiness of Army Prepositioned Stock–5 equipment. During our audit of the Army’s management of Army Prepositioned Stock–5 equipment (D2022-D000RJ-0163.000), we identified issues that resulted in unanticipated maintenance, repairs, and extended leadtimes to ensure the readiness of the military equipment selected to support the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
