The Defense Readiness Reporting System (DRRS) provides the means to manage and report the readiness of the Department of Defense and its subordinate Components to execute the National Military Strategy as assigned by the Secretary of Defense in the Defense Planning Guidance, Contingency Planning Guidance, Theater Security Cooperation Guidance, and the Unified Command Plan. DRRS builds upon the processes and readiness assessment tools used in the Department of Defense to establish a capabilities-based, adaptive, near real-time readiness reporting system.
All DoD Components will use the DRRS information to identify critical readiness deficiencies, develop strategies for rectifying these deficiencies, and ensure they are addressed in appropriate program/budget planning or other DoD management systems. DDRS will permit commanders to obtain pertinent readiness data on personnel assigned/attached to their units.
The major subsystems of the Defense Readiness Reporting System include:
- The Enhanced Status of Resources and Training System (ESORTS), an automated, near real-time readiness reporting system that provides resource standards and current readiness status for operational forces and defense support organizations in terms of their ability to perform their mission essential tasks.
- The Planning and Assessment Tools Suite (PATS) provides the capability to assess plans using real unit data.
