Project Announcement: Evaluation of U.S. Central Command and U.S. Special Operations Command Implementation of the DoD’s Law of War Program (Project No. D2021-DEV0PD-0045.000)


We plan to begin the subject evaluation in January 2021. The objective of this evaluation is to determine the extent to which U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM) and U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) developed and implemented programs in accordance with DoD Law of War requirements to reduce potential law of war violations when conducting operations. We will also determine whether potential USCENTCOM and USSOCOM law of war violations were reported and reviewed in accordance with DoD policy. We may revise the objective as the evaluation proceeds, and we will consider suggestions from management for additional or revised objectives.
