Closure of the Inspection of Personnel Accountability in Conjunction with Natural or Manmade Disasters

We issued the inspection report on DIA's Personnel Accountability (PA) Program on February 28, 2018. We found that DIA was non-compliant on two of the DoD component requirements listed in DoD Instruction 3001.02, “Personnel Accountability in Conjunction with Natural or Manmade Disasters,” May 3, 2010. We also found that DIA’s policy and practices did not account for and report on all six categories of DoD-affiliated personnel, specifically, family members of DoD-affiliated personnel.

The offices developed and implemented corrective action plans to address the identified risks. We verified that the implemented corrective actions met the intent of the three recommendations, which have all been closed. DIA’s updated policy to codify responsibilities and improve procedures as well as continued emphasis on accurate personnel accountability will continue to improve the program’s effectiveness. Closing these recommendations is a positive step and represents progress in addressing two of DIA’s Top Management Challenges – Continuity of Operations, as well as Leadership Controls and Oversight.
