Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Office of the Secretary of Defense, DoD.

ACTION:

Notice to alter a System of Records.

SUMMARY:

The Office of the Secretary of Defense proposes to alter a system of records, DPR 30 DoD, entitled “Department of Defense Readiness Reporting System (DRRS) Records” in its inventory of record systems subject to the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended.

The Defense Readiness Reporting System (DRRS) provides the means to manage and report the readiness of the Department of Defense and its subordinate Components to execute the National Military Strategy as assigned by the Secretary of Defense in the Defense Planning Guidance, Contingency Planning Guidance, Theater Security Cooperation Guidance, and the Unified Command Plan. DRRS builds upon the processes and readiness assessment tools used in the Department of Defense to establish a capabilities-based, adaptive, near real-time readiness reporting system.

All DoD components will use the DRRS information to identify critical readiness deficiencies, develop strategies for rectifying these deficiencies, and ensure they are addressed in appropriate program/budget planning or other DoD management systems. DRRS will permit commanders to obtain pertinent readiness data on personnel assigned/attached to their units.”
