From the Executive Summary: "On February 26, 2021, Secretary of Defense Austin directed On-Site Installation Evaluations (OSIEs) at select installations. OSIEs focus on an installation's prevention capabilities and ability to effectively address risk for sexual assault, harassment, and suicide. They were designed to provide early detection of risk factors so leaders can take corrective actions and enhance prevention. OSIEs aim to provide insights on risk and protective factors on the ground, what works, what does not, how the Department can improve efforts more comprehensively, and support efforts to implement the approved recommendations of the Independent Review Commission on Sexual Assault in the Military (IRC). An additional purpose of the inaugural OSIEs was to pilot a process and metrics to establish an enduring installation evaluation capability that can be replicated in subsequent evaluations. [...] Based on the results from a force-wide climate survey in 2021, 20 sites with high risk or protective percentile scores were selected for OSIEs. Of these, 13 OSIEs were completed July through September 2021[.] [...] Seven site visits were delayed due to mission requirements of the units of interest and were subsequently completed November 2021 through January 2022[.] [...] Within each installation, the units with the highest risk or protective percentile scores on the installation were evaluated, in addition to the helping agencies and prevention personnel that supported these units. On-site evaluations verified installation self-assessed compliance with sexual assault, sexual harassment, and integrated violence prevention policy and prevention best practice. In addition, evaluations assessed prevention capabilities of installations and units of interest. This report summarizes findings and recommendations for the 20 sites that completed OSIEs[.]"
