Audit reveals Army’s trillion-dollar accounting gaffes

(August 23, 2016)

The audit, conducted by the Defense Department’s Office of Inspector General, found that the Army erroneously made $2.8 trillion in adjustments in the third quarter of 2015 to its Army general fund – one of the main accounts used to fund the service.
