“I would like to congratulate the Department of Navy and the U.S. Marine Corps for the Marines’ achievement of a clean audit—the first of the military services. This progress reflects both dedicated leadership attention within the Corps and teamwork across the Department of Defense. We owe the American people a clean financial bill of health. We intend to get there as soon as humanly possible, and these results bring us one step closer. DoD still has work to do, including continuing the modernization of our financial system and enhancing accountability of government furnished property, particularly the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program. We are committed to learning from the Marines’ success so we can scale it to other areas of the Department.”
