The screening and management of services members with medical situations that render them non- deployable and unavailable for world-wide assignability is a key manpower and readiness issue. The Navy manages service members unable to perform their duties due to medical reasons utilizing both the Temporary Limited Duty Assignment process (TLD) and the Disability Evaluation System (DES). The objective of this thesis is to analyze the Temporary Limited Duty Assignment process and the Disability Evaluation System, identify' process inefficiencies, compile a reference document and assess the impact on Force Structure and the Individuals Account. An in-depth review of the steps in each process is provided with timeline flow charts. This thesis analyzes the factors that contribute to the amount of time a service member spends in a transient and limited duty status. The thesis also identifies the primary claimants and their roles and responsibilities in each process and analyze the inter-relationship of TLD and DES. An extensive summary of findings is provided with recommendations for streamlining the processes to improve efficiency.
