DOD Can Save Millions By Using Less Expensive Packaging For Small Arms Training Ammunition The Department of Defense is paying more than it needs to for ammunition intended for small arms training. Such ammunition, mm. and mm., is bought in combat packs and is. GAO reviewed the Department of Defense's (DOD) packaging of small arms training ammunition to determine whether such packaging costs could be found that, although DOD policy requires the use of the most cost-effective packaging, small arms training ammunition is bought with material that is not needed and used only occasionally for training purposes.

In order to comply with the mandate, new materials being shipped to the DoD must be tagged so that each item can be uniquely identified using only the information in the tag.

Tags that satisfy this requirement are known as "license plate" tags. The DoD's stated long-term goal is to move to the use of EPC Class 1, UHF Generation 2 tags. Funding for weapons systems—which constitutes about one-third of the Department of Defense’s budget—is used to procure new systems, upgrade existing systems, and perform research, development, testing, and evaluation of new systems.

CBO reviews selected weapon programs and provides a regular analysis of the long-term cost of planned weapons acquisition. How can the agency save significant amounts of money when it spends this vast sum.

DOD and the military departments have a management structure for reviewing individual services acquisitions of $ million or more, but that approach does not provide a departmentwide assessment of how spending for services could be more effective.
