. UNITED STATES GENERAL ACCBUNTING OFFKE REGIONAL OFFICE ROOM 40% U § CUSTOMHOUSE, 110 SOUTH EANAL S-3-m CHICAGO9 iLLINOIS 60607 Brigadier General Peter G, Olenchuk Commanding General U. S. Army Ammunition Procurement and Supply Ageucy Joliet, Illinois 60436 Dear General Olenchuk: We recently completed a survey of contractor operations at the Iowa and Lone Star Army Ammunition Plants. Our survey in- cluded a review of (1) the number of wage employees and supervisory personnel assigned to indirect operateons at these plants and (2) the industrfal management reviews made by the Plant Operations Directorate. On July 2, 1971, our staff dis- cussed the survey results with Colonel Milton I. Fogel, Director, Plant Operations Directorate, and other members of your staff. We noted that extensive industrial management reviews have been performed by the Plant Operations Directorate. In view of this effort, we believe that detailed reviews by us at this time are not necessary. For discussion purposes at the July 2 meeting, we gave Colonel Fogel a summary describfng areas of contractor operatfons that appeared to be overstaffed at Iowa and Lone Star. In brief, our summary discusses apparent excess personnel at Lone Star in selected maintenance units, purchasjlng activittes, the guard force, motor pool operations, and financial administration; and at Iowa in selected maintenance units and the fire department. Colonel Pogel's response to our presentation was quite favorable; he expressed concern about the indications of excess personnel. He stated that the Directorate till initiate indus- trial management reviews at Lone Star and Iowa which till include the areas discussed in our summary. SOTH ANNIVERSARY 1921- 19?l We would lfke to express our appreciation for the assistance provided to our staff. Also, we would appreciate your informing us of the results of any reviews made by your staff regarding the matters discussed Sn our summary. A copy of this letter is being sent to the Secretary of the Amy. Sincerely yours, -2-
