For 25 years, the Navy contracted with Singapore-based Glenn Defense Marine Asia (GDMA) for husbanding service support in Seventh Fleet. In 2013, the Justice Department revealed that GDMA had secured husbanding service contracts and conducted business through illicit procurement fraud schemes. This research identified deficiencies in the Navy's husbanding contract management processes, internal controls, and personnel competency. Based on the research findings, the researchers provide recommendations to the Navy to improve the auditability of Navy husbanding service contracting.
