From the report: "In January 2014, the Department of Defense (DOD) issued its Strategy for Improving DOD Asset Visibility (Strategy) and supporting execution plans (SEP), which included five of the seven key elements of a comprehensive strategic plan and partially included the other two elements. For example, the Strategy fully includes a comprehensive mission statement; a problem definition, scope, and methodology; goals and objectives; activities, milestones, and performance measures; and organizational roles, responsibilities, and coordination. However, 4 of the 22 SEPs, which outline initiatives intended to improve asset visibility, did not address resources and investments and key external factors. DOD officials told GAO that this information would be added during regular updates to the Strategy. Since the Strategy was issued, DOD components have begun updating the SEPs to include informationsuch as costs and key external factorsthat had been missing from the SEPs included in the Strategy."
