The Top DoD Management Challenges document identifies the top management and performance challenges impacting the DoD for FY 2022 and beyond. Each Inspector General is required by law to prepare this annual statement summarizing what the IG considers the “most serious management and performance challenges facing the agency.” These challenges are based on the DoD OIG’s independent research, assessment, and judgment; previous oversight work and oversight work of other organizations; congressional hearings and legislation; input from DoD officials; and issues raised by the media. The DoD OIG also considers and assesses the DoD’s progress in addressing these challenges.
