P.1 Purpose

a. This Headquarters Procedural Requirement (HQPR) describes the process for performing Management System Reviews (MSRs) of Headquarters management systems and related controls.

MSRs must be performed for all HQ organizations at least once every three years. The MSR focus is based on the MSR Plan and previous MSR results.

b. This HQPR provides for tracking and monitoring of corrective actions for identified deficiencies.

c. This HQPR provides an MSR process that is designed to test and validate the effectiveness of HQ Management Systems and to provide data for potential revisions to affected policies and procedures.
