ABSTRACT
The article presents a study of the U.S. Department of Defense's (DOD's) prevention and treatment of domestic abuse among military personnel conducted by the Government Accountability Office (GAO). According to GAO, DOD has no oversight framework with goals, milestones, and metrics with which to determine the effectiveness of its efforts. The GAO suggested that the sustained leadership attention and an oversight framework would have helped guide DOD to fully manage its efforts and effectiveness.
