Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
On Auditing the Department of Defense
Tuesday, June 30, 2020
As the Senate considers the NDAA this week, I hope that my amendments to improve the Pentagon’s financial management systems and crack down on wasteful spending will be supported.
Thirty years after Congress passed the CFO Act, the DOD remains the only executive agency that cannot get a clean audit opinion.
Every dollar of defense spending should be used to ensure our nation’s security and support our service men and women, which is why the DOD needs to be held accountable for waste, fraud and abuse.
