Project Announcement: Evaluation of Contested Mobility Requirements and Training for Personnel Supporting the DoD’s Surge Sealift Mission in the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command Area of Responsibility (Project No. D2023-DEV0PA-0125.000)


The purpose of this memorandum is to notify you that we plan to begin the subject evaluation in June 2023. The objective of this evaluation is to determine whether the DoD effectively provided contested mobility requirements and training for personnel supporting the DoD’s surge sealift mission in the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command (USINDOPACOM) area of responsibility. Specifically, we will review the required sealift skills and competencies, and the availability of training for personnel operating in a contested mobility environment. We may revise the objective as the evaluation proceeds, and we will also consider suggestions from management for additional or revised objectives. We plan to perform this evaluation in accordance with the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency, “Quality Standards for Inspection and Evaluation.”
