Summary Violent extremist movements and ongoing military operations have prompted the Department of Defense (DOD) to place greater emphasis on improving language and regional proficiency, which includes cultural awareness. GAO was asked to assess the extent to which DOD has (1) developed a strategic plan to guide its language and regional proficiency transformation efforts and (2) obtained the information it needs to identify potential language and regional proficiency gaps and assess risk. To conduct this assessment, GAO analyzed DOD's Defense Language Transformation Roadmap, reviewed the military services' strategies for transforming language and regional proficiency capabilities, and assessed the range of efforts intended to help identify potential gaps.
Contents Background -- DOD lacks a comprehensive strategic plan for guiding transformation of language and regional proficiency capabilities -- DOD has not fully identified gaps in language and regional proficiency to effectively assess risks -- Conclusions.
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references.
