US Navy - we didn’t even know the warehouse existed
« on: October 27, 2019, 11:36:46 »
Modly’s latest readiness snapshot for the Navy and Marine Corps came through an external audit by Ernst and Young. While the sea service maintains a 99.9 percent accuracy of its audits on individual warships, it suffered from a lack of information on its shore-based facilities, he said.

He disclosed that the audit team found a warehouse in Jacksonville, Florida, last year that contained more than $126 million in F-14 Tomcat, P-3 Orion and P-8 Poseidon parts.

“Not only did we not know that the parts existed, we didn’t even know the warehouse existed,” he said.

Maverick or Iran? Just wondering who still needs those F-14 parts.

Don't bases do their own audits also?

Did nobody seriously ask "Hey, whats that big warehouse over there?  What do we use it for?"    at any point?


F-14 parts might be a bit outdated...but parts for P8's sound like they'd be something worth keeping track of...

They are supposed to be keeping close track of F-14 parts and destroying them all.  There are probably a few black marketeers dealing with Iran that would be interested in an uncontrolled warehouse with F-14 parts.
