Final Recommendations of the Washington Navy Yard Shooting Internal and Independent Reviews
United States. Department of Defense. Office of the Secretary of Defense
"Following the tragic shooting at the Washington Navy Yard on September 16, 2013, I directed concurrent Internal and Independent Reviews to identify and recommend actions to address any gaps or deficiencies in DoD programs, policies, and procedures regarding security at DoD installations and the granting and renewing of security clearances for DoD and contractor personnel. The reviews considered previous relevant studies in arriving at their conclusions. After considering the findings and recommendations from the reviews, I approve the following four key recommendations […]. 1. Implement Continuous Evaluation. Implement continuous evaluation in coordination with the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Office of Personnel Management, as appropriate, to provide automated records checks of personnel with access to DoD facilities or classified information. 2. Establish a DoD Insider Threat Management and Analysis Center (DITMAC). Establish a DITMAC with assigned cross-functional representatives to assess, recommend intervention or mitigation, and oversee case action on threats that insiders may pose to their colleagues and/or DoD missions and resources. […] 3. Centralize Authority, Accountability and Programmatic Integration Under a Single Principal Staff Assistant PSA). Centralize authority, accountability and programmatic integration of continuous evaluation and establishment of the DITMAC under the USD(I) as the PSA with fiscal control over the Department's personnel security resources. 4. Resource and Expedite Deployment of the Identity Management Enterprise Services Architecture (MESA). Examine resourcing the deployment of MESA in FY 2016."
