The Secretary and the Deputy Secretary of Defense have shown strong support for the DRI program and established an organizational framework to give additional structure and guidance to the effort. Also, using special directives, performance contracts, and planning and budget guidance, DOD has sought to institutionalize and sustain the DRI. DODs inclusion of the DRI into its plans for implementing the Government Performance and Results Act Results Act, and its requirements for strategic goals and performance plans, represent an important step toward ensuring along-term focus on the initiatives and on efforts to track their progress.
