Project Announcement: Evaluation of the DoD’s Implementation of Suicide Prevention Resources for Transitioning Uniformed Service Members (Project No. D2020-DEV0PB-0189.000)


The DoD Office of Inspector General (OIG) plans to begin the subject evaluation in October 2020. The objective of this evaluation is to determine whether the DoD provided suicide prevention resources for transitioning military service members as required by Executive Order 13822, Presidential Executive Order on Supporting Our Veterans During Their Transition From Uniformed Service to Civilian Life. For the purpose of this evaluation, a transitioning Service Member includes all individuals with a planned or pending separation from active duty military service. This includes individuals completing service commitment contracts, retiring, and involved in medical evaluation boards or administrative separation proceedings. We may revise the objective as the evaluation proceeds, and we will also consider suggestions from management for additional or revised objectives.
