Risk to Readiness
The Navy has been working to improve the readiness of its
surface combatant and amphibious warfare ships, but the service "faces risks to
fully implementing its strategy and has not assessed these risks or developed
alternatives to mitigate them," according to a Sept. 21 Government
Accountability Office report titled, "Navy Needs to Assess Risks to Its Strategy
to Improve Ship Readiness." The report states that while the service has
developed a new strategy to better integrate maintenance actions, training and
manning, other factors such as high operational tempos and supporting
organizations' staffing levels "could delay the entry of some ships into the
strategy and the execution of the strategy."
