Eliminate National Guard Guidance Memo 16-01 requiring ISOPREP

The memorandum states, “All AGR, Traditional

Guard, ANG Technicians, DoD Civilians, and DoD

Contractors assigned to the ANG must complete an

ISOPREP prior to going on OCONUS leave,

deployment, or TDY. All others must complete an

ISOPREP within two years of the signing date of this

(GM 16-01) document.” - Prior to this memo only those personnel at high risk of being captured or becoming hostages were required to have ISOPREP. Applying the requirement accross the enterprise is unreasonable. ARGUMENT FOR ELIMINATION: ISOPREP becomes classified document when complete. Cost of classification = approx $400 per document. Total ANG end strength = 106,700. Possible saving by NOT fulfilling this needless requirement = $42,680,000.00
