ABSTRACT
The article examines the knowledge of the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) about counterfeit parts in its supply chain and its initiatives to mitigate its risk, by the Government Accountability Office (GAO). The DOD does not have a departmentwide definition of counterfeit, limiting its ability to determine the existence of counterfeit parts. It also does not have a policy to prevent it. The GAO recommends that it should leverage existing initiatives to establish anticounterfeiting guidance.
