Project Announcement: Evaluation of Lead Paint in Military Family Housing (Congressional Request) (Project No. D2019-D000PT-0052.000)

We plan to begin the subject evaluation immediately in response to a congressional request. House Report 115-929, the conference report accompanying the bill that became Public Law 115-244, "Energy and Water, Legislative Branch, and Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act, 2019," directs the Inspector General of the Department of Defense to report on toxic lead levels at military housing on all installations. Our objective is to determine whether the Military Services effectively managed lead-based paint hazards in Governmentowned and Government-controlled military family housing. This project will include, but is not limited to, documentation review, on-site inspections, and interviews with personnel. Our request for informationand logistical requirements will be contained in a follow-on memorandum.
