Veronica Daigle, assistant secretary for defense for readiness, said the department is planning to consolidate the Defense Readiness Reporting System as an enterprise system to improve data collection functions, FCW reported Thursday.
Daigle said at a Professional Services Council event that her office is working on a reform plan outlining significant changes such as the DRRS integration. The plan is slated for submission to Congress early next year.
Previously, DoD launched efforts to expand its readiness recovery framework to include 92 metrics and 34 major force elements. According to Daigle, DoD’s continued expansion of the framework supports efforts to identify readiness deficiencies through a "transparent, measurable and repeatable process."
"Through the R2F, my office is looking to improve the quality and utility of our readiness data,” she said. “We want to identify leading indicators to readiness improvements and increase our ability to accurately measure and track readiness recovery.”
