Project Announcement: Audit of Navy’s Accelerated Promotion Program Suspension (Project No. D2022-D000RK-0090.000)


We plan to begin the subject audit in February 2022. This audit is in response to a reporting requirement included in Public Law 117-81, “The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2022,” section 1115, “Assessment of Accelerated Promotion Program Suspension,” December 27, 2021. The objective of this audit is to determine whether employees hired at the Navy’s four public shipyards were affected by the suspension of the Accelerated Promotion Program in 2016 and, if so, determine the number of employees affected. For employees affected, determine the monetary impact to those employees and whether they are entitled to additional compensation, and identify the amount. We may revise the objective as the audit proceeds, and we will also consider suggestions from management for additional or revised objectives.
