This interim report summarizes the results of an independent assessment of Department of Defense (DoD) personnel systems and databases, focused on the identification and differentiation of what personnel data exist, where, and at what organizational level, as well as what is done with those data.
The aim of the current study was to further test a model of culture-general competence. We call the model Adaptive Readiness for Culture (ARC). It is general in that it applies across all regions of interest. The skills that comprise ARC were identified in an earlier study of 20 Marine Corps and Army service members who had worked in multiple cultures.

The Defense Language Transformation Roadmap was built out of a need for each Military Department, Combatant Command (COCOM), and Defense Agency to review its requirements for language professionals. The Defense Foreign Language Steering Committee (DFLSC) oversaw the development of this Roadmap and approved its assumptions, descriptions of the current situation, desired outcomes, and recommendations.
