U.S. Northern Command NORTHCOM exercises to test preparedness to perform its homeland defense and civil support missions. GAO was asked to assess the extent to which NORTHCOM is 1 consistent with Department of Defense DOD training and exercise requirements, 2 involving interagency partners and states in its exercises, 3 using lessons learned and corrective actions to improve preparedness, and 4 integrating its exercises with the National Exercise Program NEP. To do this, GAO reviewed NORTHCOM and NEP guidance and postexercise documentation, assessed NORTHCOM compliance, and compared DOD and NEP exercise requirements.
