In March 1996, GAO reported that the Navy's fiscal year 1994 consolidated financial reports on general fund operations--which included $78 billion for the Navy's plant property--were substantially inaccurate because of at least $225 billion in errors, including upwards of $25.6 billion in errors involving the Navy's plant property account balances. (See GAO/AIMD-96-7.) GAO made more than a dozen recommendations to avoid the mistakes made in preparing the Navy's fiscal years 1994 consolidated financial reports on general fund operations. This report describes in greater detail the factors contributing to inaccurate reporting of the Navy's plant property account balance. The report also recommends additional measures to ensure that the Navy has reliable information with which to effectively manage and control the billions of dollars the government has invested in Navy plant property

Challenges in defense working capital fund pricing : analysis of the Defense Finance and Accounting Service( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) provides finance services (such as paying military members, government-employed civilians, and contractors) and accounting services (such as tabulation and analysis of customer obligations and expenditures) to Department of Defense (DoD) customers This report examines the DFAS pricing structure and its impact on customer incentives and behavior. We believe the DFAS pricing structure is important on two levels. First, with approximately $2 billion in expenditures per year, DFAS itself is a sizable portion of the DoD infrastructure Second, we believe the pricing issues that DFAS confronts are similar to those faced by other Defense Working Capital Fund (DWCF) organizations, including the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), the Defense information Systems Agency (DISA), the Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA), and the military services' depot systems. Analysis of DFAS's pricing issues might therefore provide insights into the pricing structures of DoD working capital fund organizations in general Like other DWCF organizations, DFAS covers its expenditures by charging customers for its services DFAS charges per "work unit" (e.g., per account paid) for its finance services and charges by the hour for its accounting services. Hourly rates for accounting services vary by customer; finance fees generally do not Various finance products represented about half of the DFAS regions' fiscal year 2001 (FY01) expenditures, accounting represented about 40 percent of the regions' expenditures, and information services represented about 10 percent
Improving the Defense Finance and Accounting Service's interactions with its customers( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) provides a variety of finance and accounting services to military customers. Because DFAS received customer complaints, its leadership asked RAND to take a comprehensive look at all DFAS-customer interactions to identify problems and determine how those interactions might be improved. The methodology was to collect information from interviews and data analysis and then make recommendations for improving customer interactions. RAND interviewed personnel at DFAS headquarters, two regional centers, and two operating locations, selecting employees who have considerable experience in the organization. Then we interviewed knowledgeable command- and installation-level customers to identify the issues they felt were most important in their interactions with DFAS. Our research was complemented by analysis of DFAS data pertaining to costs, workload, and performance. Customers cited two shortcomings in DFAS finance services: unacceptably high interest penalty payments and untimely and inaccurate payments to military personnel. On the accounting side, customers suggested the Chief Financial Officers Act of 1990 was a compliance exercise of little direct benefit to them. We determined that DFAS has problems, both in accounting and finance, with new systems acquisition and implementation. RAND made four recommendations to DFAS: (1) Develop the ability to respond to crises such as the FY00 change in military pay. (2) Continue its pricing reforms. (3) Acquire new software commercially. (4) Make greater use of the Web to make the accounting data customers receive more timely and to expedite efforts to fix errors
