Top DoD Management Challenges – Fiscal Year 2021

The Top DoD Management Challenges document identifies the top management and performance challenges impacting the DoD for FY 2021 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.”  This report provides Congress and the DoD’s civilian and military leaders an independent assessment of the management and performance challenges confronting the DoD.  Finally, the Top DoD Management Challenges document must be included in the DoD’s annual financial report.
