The purpose of this management advisory is to report on issues related to the accounting and reporting of F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Program inventory, collected during the DoD Agency-Wide Financial Statements audit. During the audit, the Department of Defense Office of Inspector General (DoD OIG) found that the F-35 JSF Program Office did not have a valid population of Joint Strike Fighter inventory. In addition, we reported on the DoD’s plan for transferring the management, planning, and execution of sustainment activities to the Secretary of the Navy and the Secretary of the Air Force in accordance with the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2022.
