Additional DOD Guidance Is Needed to Enhance Oversight of the Service Academies and Their Preparatory Schools
February 27, 2012
While DOD, collectively, has partially implemented each of our four recommendations regarding the service academies and their preparatory schools, the actions taken by the services vary significantly. In addition, OUSD (P&R) has not yet updated its guidance for the academies and preparatory schools to address our 2003 recommendations. The text below summarizes the four recommendations we made in September 2003 regarding the academies and their preparatory schools and the status of DOD's implementation.
Recommendation regarding the service academies:
Recommendation: Further enhance performance goals and measures whereby the information required in annual assessment reports can be better evaluated;
Status of implementation and actions taken: Partially implemented: The Air Force and the Navy have established performance goals and measures for their respective academies, but the Army has not.
