Audit: U.S. State Dept. Failed to Maintain Armored Vehicles

By Team Writer / February 22, 2017

The United States Department Bureau of Diplomatic Security did not maintain its fleet of armored vehicles. This was according to a new report from the office of the inspector general. The program provides around 4500 sedans, trucks, vans and SUV’s from many different manufacturers to enhance protection for employees and United States dignitaries.

Key Takeaways:

  • The U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security failed to properly maintain its fleet of armored vehicles, according to a new report from the Office of the Inspector General (OIG).
  • There were also vulnerabilities in the program. Because posts were left in charge of their own fleet, vehicles were not taken care of.
  • Many posts were over- or under-stocked due to a lack of control from the DEAV.
