The National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year FY 1997 established the requirement for the U.S. Department of Defense DoD to conduct a Quadrennial Defense Review QDR and report the results of that review in a QDR report by May 1997. The statutory language associated with producing the report was subsequently amended to synchronize its release with the Presidents budget submission the year following the review. As amended, the statutory language that existed in early 2014 called for the report to address a broad array of 17 distinct issues.
