OIG: NASA Has No Idea How Many Portable Devices It Has

NASA OIG: NASA's Management of its Smartphones, Tablets, and Other Mobile Devices

"The OIG found that weaknesses in NASA's mobile device management means the Agency is unable to ensure that it is not paying for a significant number of unused devices. Specifically, NASA lacks a complete and accurate inventory of Agency-issued smartphones, tablets, cellphones, and AirCards (used to provide internet access) because the information system NASA uses to order equipment from its main IT contractor is not fully functional or integrated with the database the Agency uses to track IT assets."
