What GAO Found
Our analysis showed that DODs Fiscal Year 2010 Annual Energy Management Report fully addressed two, did not address one (issue 4), and partially addressed five of the eight expanded reporting requirements. In some cases, it was difficult to determine the extent to which DOD had addressed an issue because information related to a specific reporting requirement was fragmented or scattered throughout the report. With regard to the one issue not addressed, DOD indicated it had plans to address it in a separate report tentatively scheduled to be published in early 2012.
Why GAO Did This Study
This report formally transmits our January 2012 briefing to committees in response to section 332(c) of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2010 (section 332) and our response to House Report 111-166 regarding the Department of Defenses (DOD) energy- efficiency programs. The act and House report directed DOD to report on a specific set of energy issues and directed GAO to review DODs report and submit to Congress a report on our findings.
