Summary:

Spot checks of technological equipment for sale as surplus at four U.S. Air Force bases found that computerized items such as missile parts, tracking systems, and safety devices were miscoded for demilitarization from a third of the time to over half the time - releasing the items for sale despite classified data or components. The inspectors who flagged the miscoded items prevented some, but not all, from being sold.

Notes:

The Deseret Morning News (Utah) used FOIA to obtain the Air Force Audit Agency reports.
