  • Description: We are providing this final report on the Audit of Procurement of Clothing and Textiles for your information and use. Comments on a draft of this report were considered in preparing the final report. We made the audit from October 1988 through December 1989 at the direction of the Deputy Inspector General, DoD. The audit objectives were to determine whether procurements of clothing and textiles were in accordance with policies and procedures in the Federal Acquisition Regulation and the DoD Supplement to the Federal Acquisition Regulation and to evaluate the adequacy of internal controls over the procurement process. Our primary focus was on the adequacy of actions taken to correct weaknesses in the procurement process that were identified as a result of the clothing and textile fraud investigation at the Defense Personnel Support Center (the Center). The lack of checks and balances, and accountability and proper documentation for critical procurement decisions were identified by the Defense Logistics Agency (the Agency) as prime underlying factors in the criminal activity. We also reviewed procedures used to compute procurement quantities for selected contracts. Purchases of clothing and textiles in FY's 1988 and 1989 amounted to $1.2 billion and $1.1 billion, respectively.
