Appropriate Contracting Processes Used to Satisfy Validated Marine Corps Logistics Prepositioning Requirements

DODIG-2013-132

Our audit objective was to determine whether Marine Corps officials used appropriate contracting processes to satisfy mission requirements for prepositioning and logistics support in accordance with Federal and DoD policies. Specifically, we determined whether mission requirements were validated by the requiring activities and whether the U.S. Marine Corps Blount Island Command (BICmd) contracting office used appropriate processes and procedures to award task orders to meet mission requirements. Marine Corps Forces Central Command (MARCENT), Marine Corps Logistics Command (MCLC), and BICmd officials used appropriate contracting processes to satisfy validated FY 2013 mission requirements for prepositioning and logistics support valued at approximately $73.3 million. We considered management comments on a discussion draft of this report in preparing the final report.
