The Army’s Tactical Explosive Detection Dog Disposition Process from 2011 to 2014
Objective: In 2016, the House Committee on Armed Services asked the DoD OIG to conduct an independent evaluation of the Army’s Tactical Explosive Detection Dog (TEDD) disposition status, including an analysis of transfer and adoption records at the end of the program.
The objectives of this evaluation were to determine whether:
• the Department of the Army complied with appropriate criteria for the disposition of TEDDs at the time when the disposition of the TEDDs occurred, and
• the Secretary of the Air Force, as the Executive Agent for the DoD Military Working Dog (MWD) Program, provided the required management and policy oversight of the TEDD disposition plan.
