Oversight Hearing On Deepwater

Thursday, April 21, 2005
The Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure conducted an oversight hearing on Deepwater Implementation. Chairman LoBiondo (R-NJ) expressed concern that the revised implementation plan is lacking in detail, but noted that acquisition should not be further delayed. Admiral Thomas H. Collins, Commandant, U.S. Coast Guard, testified that the enhanced capabilities requested in the revised plan are necessary to meet the agency’s expanded missions. Ms. Margaret T. Wrightson, Government Accountability Office (GAO), testified that the Coast Guard needs the new assets, but GAO is concerned that the acquisition strategy is not optimum.
