Project Announcement: Evaluation of the DoD’s Notification Procedures for the Presidential Emergency Satchel (Project No. D2021-DEV0SN-0145.000)


We plan to begin the subject evaluation in July 2021. The objective of this evaluation is to determine the extent that DoD processes and procedures are in place and adequate to alert DoD officials in the event that the Presidential Emergency Satchel is lost, stolen, or compromised. This evaluation will also determine the adequacy of the procedures the DoD has developed to respond to such an event. We may revise the objective as the evaluation proceeds, and we will also consider suggestions from management for additional or revised objectives.
