Description
 
The Dept. of Defense (DOD) depends on commercial SATCOM to support a variety of critical mission needs, from unmanned aerial vehicles and intelligence to voice and data for military personnel. In FY 2011, the most recent information available, DOD spent over $1 billion leasing commercial satellite communications (SATCOM). GAO found that some major DOD users of commercial satellite bandwidth were dissatisfied with Defense Info. Systems Agencyńˇ╗s (DISAńˇ╗s) acquisition process seeing it as too costly and lengthy. They also indicated that the contracts used were too inflexible. This report (1) assesses the extent to which DOD efficiently procures bandwidth; (2) analyzes the extent to which DOD has identified its future SATCOM requirements using DOD and commercial satellite services, as well as how those requirements will be met; and (3) identifies the steps DOD is taking to improve its procurements of commercial SATCOM. Table and figure. This is a print on demand report.
