We began this evaluation in response to correspondence from the Assistant Secretary of Defense Health Affairs ASDHA. The ASDHA was concerned that the Military Criminal Investigative Organizations MCIOs were not investigating cases in which individuals used false documentation to obtain identification cards needed to access military benefits and privileges. In performing preliminary research on the ASDHA concerns, however, we determined that the MCIOs generally were not notified when an ineligible individual was suspected of obtaining or using an identification card. Our overall objective for the evaluation, therefore, was expanded to encompass whether the Department of Defense DoD is effective in preventing, detecting, and investigating instances in which ineligible individuals obtain identification cards, and the benefits they receive from using these cards. We announced this evaluation on March 13, 1997, and conducted our primary fieldwork between July 30, 1997, and February 28, 1998. We conducted additional fieldwork in January 1999. On June 10, 1999, we issued this report in draft form for management comments.
