Naval Ship Donation: Selection Decision for U.S.S. New Jersey Was Objective, but Selection Process Can Be Strengthened: GAO-01-31

Government Document
In January 2000, the Navy chose the Home Port Alliance, a nonprofit group, to receive the U.S.S. New Jersey under the Navy's ship donation program. This report summarizes GAO's findings on the credibility of the selection process and opportunities for improvement. GAO found that the Navy applied its donation evaluation criteria in an impartial, multiple-stage process that led to a credible and objective decision. Although not significant to the outcome of the U.S.S. New Jersey decision, opportunities exist to strengthen the timeliness, clarity of guidance, and communications of the selection process.
