Arlington National Cemetery (Arlington) contains the remains of more than 330,000 military servicemen and women, family members, and others. In June 2010, the Army Inspector General issued a report identifying numerous deficiencies at Arlington, including those related to contracting. In response, the Secretary of the Army issued guidance creating the position of the Executive Director of the Army National Cemeteries Program (ANCP) to manage Arlington and requiring changes to address the deficiencies and improve cemetery operations.Public Law 111-339 directed GAO to (1) identify the number, duration of, and dollar amount spent on current contracts used to support operations at Arlington and (2) assess the extent to which the Army has put processes and procedures in place to provide for the effective management and oversight of contracts supporting Arlington. GAO analyzed data from contracting offices and other sources on contracts active during fiscal year 2010 and 2011 and above $100,000 and reviewed contract files; analyzed guidance, policies, plans and other documentation from Arlington and other organizations; and interviewed agency officials.
