Dear General Lawson:

In May 2013, my predecessor released a report entitled A Report Outlining the Delays in the Processing of Adjudications and Initial Authority Grievances by the Director General Compensation & Benefits.  In that report our office made 11 recommendations. In your letter to my predecessor of July 2013, you provided an action plan to address the issues noted in the report.

As a matter of corporate practice, my office benchmarks progress on our recommendations on a regular basis. While our respective staffs have been in regular discussions on progress, I would like to request a formal update to the recommendations.
