The 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) Report
Even though DoD Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) reports are not life cycle logistics or product support-specific documents, did you know that as a public service we’ve posted copies of QDR reports dating back to 1997 for use as references on the Logistics Community of Practice (LOG CoP) at Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) Reports? Did you also know that the 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) report was issued by the Department on March 4, 2014? Either way, encourage you to check out these websites, or visit the official DoD QDR website.
According to the DoD QDR Fact Sheet, among the highlights of this year’s report include the fact that:
· The 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) is a legislatively-mandated (USC 10, Sec. 118 (a)) review of the Department of Defense (DoD) strategy and priorities.
· The Secretary of Defense delivered the 2014 QDR report to Congress on March 4, 2014.
· The QDR report outlines the strategic direction of the Department and establishes priorities to determine appropriate resource investments.
· The 2014 QDR advances a national defense strategy that protects and advances U.S. interests, sustains U.S. global leadership, rebalances the Joint Force, and controls internal cost growth, while preserving and enhancing the health of the All-Volunteer Force.
· To accomplish these tasks, the QDR takes account of the strategic challenges and opportunities that will define our future: new technologies, new centers of power, and a world that is growing more volatile, more unpredictable, and in some instances more threatening to the United States.
· The QDR embodies and builds on the 2012 Defense Strategic Guidance priorities, preparing for the future by rebalancing our defense efforts in a period of fiscal constraint
