Pentagon’s Tenant Bill of Rights Near Completion; Release Could be Soon

The Pentagon’s tenant Bill of Rights is close to completion and could be finalized soon, according to Air Force Magazine reported Wednesday.

Acting Air Force Secretary Matt Donovan told airmen at a Sept. 17 Air Force town hall at AFA’s 2019 Air, Space and Cyber Conference that the Bill of Rights is “just about ready” to be released, according to the report.

“We’ve been working closely with the project owners and the privatized housing managers and with Congress because they’re very interested in this as well,” Donovan said.

The Air Force’s plan to get congressional support for such a document, which has since been adopted DOD-wide, was first reported by Reuters in February, and a draft version of the joint document was released March 6, according to the report.

Donovan told town hall attendees the military’s four service secretaries have been meeting with project owners quarterly to discuss details and ensure the Pentagon provides “the appropriate oversight at the housing management offices.”

While he said improving privatized housing is “not a one and done,” he said the Air Force will keep a focus on it to ensure the health and safety of the airmen residing on base.
