Improving Metrics for the Department of Defense
Cooperative Threat Reduction Program
Requested by Congress in P.L. 111-84, this new report from the National Academies evaluates a U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) report on proposed metrics for measuring the impact and effectiveness of DoD's Cooperative Threat Reduction Program (CTR), created in 1991 to assist states of the former Soviet Union in securing and eliminating strategic nuclear weapons and the materials used to create them. CTR has since expanded to address biological and chemical threats and cross-border smuggling of weapons of mass destruction.
These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on January 25, 2012 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
