GAO discussed the Army's ability to mobilize and move forces to ports of debarkation within the time frames of its operational plans, including: 1 the availability of the required transportation resources; and 2 the adequacy of unit and installation plans and preparations to use them. GAO found that: 1 because the Army has not identified what equipment it needs to move to mobilization stations, identifying the number or types of transportation resources it needs is difficult; 2 mobilization station commanders and transportation operating agencies believe that the Computerized Movement Planning and Status System COMPASS is inaccurate and outdated; 3 the outloading capability of mobilization stations varies from the Military Traffic Management Command's MTMC requirements; 4 deterioration of rail lines impedes movement of units to and from mobilization stations; 5 the Army has not determined mobilization stations' out-load capacities and capabilities to receive, off-load, and return transportation resources; 6 the U. Status : Closed - Implemented. Level of savings unknown. Recommendation : The Secretary of the Army should direct FORSCOM to reassess installations' needs for BBPCT materials and warehouses and retain the current hold on funds for these items until the reassessments are completed and existing stocks are redistributed in accordance with actual installation out-loading needs. Comments : The Joint Chiefs of Staff directed the services and the Defense Logistics Agency to develop commercial transportation requirements.
