Project Announcement: Evaluation of the U.S. Combatant Commands’ Responses to the Coronavirus Disease–2019 (Project No. D2020-DEV0PD-0130.000)

We plan to begin the subject evaluation in May 2020. The objective of this evaluation is to determine how U.S. Africa Command, U.S. Central Command, U.S. European Command, U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, U.S. Southern Command, and their component commands executed pandemic response plans; and to identify the challenges encountered in implementing the response plans and the impact to operations resulting from the coronavirus disease–2019 (COVID-19). We may revise the objective as the evaluation proceeds, and we will consider suggestions from management for additional or revised objectives.
