GAO has designated DOD’s Support Infrastructure Management as a high-risk area in part due to challenges DOD faces in reducing excess infrastructure. DOD manages a global real property portfolio of over 557,000 facilities DOD estimates to be valued at about $828 billion as of September 30, 2012. In September 2011, GAO found that DOD was limited in its ability to reduce excess inventory because OSD did not maintain accurate and complete data on the utilization of its facilities in its Real Property Assets Database. GAO’s analysis found that the percentage of total real property assets with a reported utilization rate in OSD’s Real Property Assets Database increased from 46 to 53 percent over the past 4 fiscal years.
