This document shows the results of the GAO's review of the Department of Defense's (DoD) selection of transportation migration systems. Specifically, it evaluates whether Defense made proper and cost-effective transportation migration system selections. The selection of migration systems is par of Defense's Corporate Information Management (CIM) initiative - a department wide effort to improve operations and reduce costs by streamlining business processes, consolidating information systems, and standardizing and integrating data. For transportation, Defense plans to migrate from an inventory of about 130 systems. To date, 28 major migration systems have been selected, with additional minor selections still to be made.
