TRANSCOM says the apparent need for corrective action was triggered by an honest mistake in the government’s System for Award Management. But the command’s position is difficult to reconcile with other publicly-available evidence.
U.S. Transportation Command has reaffirmed its original award decision in the $7.2 billion Global Household Goods contract after saying it would take corrective action.
The Army will bifurcate its headquarters IT leadership office in August, creating a separate CIO office to make IT policies and putting a three-star military officer in charge of implementing them.
U.S. Transportation Command said the restructuring it will achieve under the contract is the only way to create “meaningful accountability” in the military’s system for moving household goods.
