Senate Report 112-173

Extension and modification of reports on contracting in Iraq and Afghanistan (sec. 865)

The committee recommends a provision that would extend for 2 years the requirement for an annual report on contracting in Iraq and Afghanistan pursuant to section 863 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008 (Public Law 110-181), as amended by section 835 of the Ike Skelton National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 (Public Law 111-383).

The committee directs the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics to report to the congressional defense committees not later than 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act on the steps that the Department of Defense has taken and plans to take to address data and system deficiencies identified in previous GAO reports required by section 863 and to ensure the accuracy and completeness of contracting data available to the Department in current and future contingency operations.
