DoD Actions to Address Findings and Recommendations of the 2021 On-Site Installation Evaluations   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Memorandum: "On my first full day in office, I made countering the scourge of sexual assault in the military a key priority. In the month following, I directed the establishment of the Independent Review Commission on Sexual Assault in the Military (IRC) and directed broad policy compliance checks, the assessment and development of prevention capabilities at each installation, the enhancement of the Department's command climate efforts, and site visits to a representative sample of military installations. These site visits culminated in the release of the 2021 On-Site Installation Evaluation (OSIE) Report covering 20 DoD sites. The Office of Personnel and Readiness designed the OSIE to review best practices and areas for improvement across our installations. The OSIE Report provides the Department's most senior leaders greater visibility at the local level that can be scaled enterprise-wide. The OSIE Report will also allow the Department to better tailor our continued implementation of the IRC's recommendations. [...] I have reviewed and approved the findings and recommendations of the inaugural 2021 OSIE Report. The recommendations of the 2021 OSIE Report complement the recommendations I accepted from the IRC, of which active and urgent implementation is underway. While we have made progress, we must do more to strengthen the integrated capabilities we have on the ground to prevent sexual assault, harassment, suicide, domestic abuse, and other harmful behaviors."
