Notice of a modified System of Records.


The Commander's Risk Reduction Dashboard (CRRD) provides Army Command Teams visibility of risk history, personal readiness factors, and adverse trends for units and individual soldiers in a near real-time environment. The CRRD effort is in response to an increase in suicides in the Army. It is designed to provide Command Teams with the necessary information to recognize suicidal behavior, death risks, and high-risk behavior. In addition to formatting changes to comply with Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-108, this System of Records is being modified to expand the categories of records, clarify the purpose and use of information, update the authorities, and to incorporate the applicable DoD Routine Uses in the published notice. All other changes to the notice are administrative in nature.


This System of Records modification is effective upon publication; however, comments on the Routine Uses will be accepted on or before July 13, 2020. The Routine Uses are effective at the close of the comment period.


You may submit comments, identified by docket number and title, by any of the following methods:

* Federal Rulemaking Portal: Follow the instructions for submitting comments.

* Mail: DoD cannot receive written comments at this time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Comments should be sent electronically to the docket listed above.

Instructions: All submissions received must include the agency name and docket number for this Federal Register document. The general policy for comments and other submissions from members of the public is to make these submissions available for public viewing on the internet at as they are received without change, including any personal identifiers or contact information.

The Army developed the CRRD to improve leaders' visibility and increase personnel readiness. The Army Health Promotion, Risk Reduction, and Suicide Prevention Report 2010, initiated the CRRD requirements with the purpose of proactively identifying and mitigating the high-risk behavior of soldiers. The CRRD provides behavioral trends for individual soldiers and Army units. It consolidates information from multiple Army databases and presents command teams with a concise report about military personnel in their units involved in at-risk behaviors and the dates of occurrence. These reports are used by company and battalion commanders to decide how to proactively engage in intervention strategies with individual soldiers at the Start Printed Page 35639earliest sign of high risk behaviors or a deviation from standards. By aggregating data, the CRRD will allow command teams at brigade level and higher to monitor subordinate units with high-risk trends and ensure commanders comply with Army reporting policies. As a risk mitigation tool, the CRRD enables commanders at all levels to make deliberate and informed personnel decisions to strengthen unit readiness and maintain the Army's warfighting capability.
