The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) is charged with defending the United States, its deployed forces, and regional allies from missile attacks. In 2022, MDA continued to deliver interceptors and radar upgrades to operational commanders, including those that were expected to be delivered in prior years, but it did not meet its annual goals. As of June 2022, there were 23 GAO recommendations that have not been implemented. GAO continues to believe that implementing these recommendations related to testing, transparency, and cost reporting would help address acquisition issues.
