                   VEHICLE PROGRAM.

       (a) Limitation.--Of the funds authorized to be appropriated 
     by this Act or otherwise made available for fiscal year 2014 
     for weapons and tracked combat vehicles, Army, for the 
     procurement or upgrade of Stryker vehicles, not more than 75 
     percent may be obligated or expended until a period of 15 
     days has elapsed following the date on which the Secretary of 
     the Army submits the report under subsection (b).
       (b) Report Required.--The Secretary of the Army shall 
     submit to the congressional defense committees a report on 
     the status of the Stryker vehicle spare parts inventory 
     located in Auburn, Washington, cited in the report of the

       (a) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) budget uncertainty and reduced defense procurements 
     have had negative impacts on the tactical vehicle industrial 
     base; and
       (2) in such environment, the Army should consider 
     innovative contracting and acquisition strategies to maximize 
     cost savings, improve the sustainment of the tactical vehicle 
     industrial base, and reduce risk during this downturn in 
     defense procurement.
       (b) Study Required.--
       (1) Study.--The Secretary of the Army, in consultation with 
     the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, 
     and Logistics, shall conduct a study of the desirability and 
     feasibility of requesting legislative authority, in 
     accordance with section 2306b of title 10, United States 
     Code, to enter into one or more multiyear, multivehicle 
     contracts for the procurement of tactical vehicles beginning 
     in fiscal year 2015 or thereafter.
       (2) Report.--Not later than 90 days after the date of the 
     enactment of this Act, the Secretary, in consultation with

     and Logistics, shall submit to the congressional defense 
     committees a report on the possible multiyear, multivehicle 
     contracting options and other innovative contracting options 
     considered in the study under paragraph (1). Such report 
     should include the following:
       (A) A business case analysis of a multiyear, multivehicle 
     contract for tactical vehicles, including any potential 
     increases in cost, savings, or risk that may derive from such 
     a contract in comparison to standard contracting methods.
       (B) An evaluation of whether the Secretary requires 
     legislative action to enter into such a multiyear, 
     multivehicle contract.
       (C) Any other matters the Secretary determines appropriate.

     manpower to American Samoa and the Commonwealth of the 
     Northern Mariana Islands in the event of the establishment of 
     a unit of the National Guard in American Samoa and in the

     structure, based on the allocation derived from paragraph 
     (1).
       (4) How a unit of the National Guard in American Samoa and 
     the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Island would 
     accommodate the National Guard Bureau's ``Essential Ten'' 
     homeland defense capabilities (i.e., aviation, engineering, 
     civil support teams, security, medical, transportation, 
     maintenance, logistics, joint force headquarters, and

     time support, including National Guard technicians, required 
     to establish, maintain, and sustain a unit of the National 
     Guard in American Samoa and the Commonwealth of the Northern

     Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands to support 
     demographically a unit of the National Guard at each 
     location.
       (6) The ability of a unit of the National Guard in American 
     Samoa and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands to 
     maintain unit readiness and the logistical challenges

     Samoa or the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (or 
     both) is feasible, the Secretary shall include in the 
     notification the following:
       (1) A determination of whether the executive branch of 
     American Samoa and of the Commonwealth of the Northern 
     Mariana Islands has enacted and implemented statutory 
     authorization for an organized militia as a prerequisite for 
     establishing a unit of the National Guard, and a description 
     of any other steps that such executive branches must take to 
     request and carry out the establishment of a National Guard 
     unit.
       (2) A list of any amendments to titles 10, 32, and 37, 
     United States Code, that would have to be enacted by Congress

     Guard in American Samoa and in the Commonwealth of the 
     Northern Mariana Islands.
       (3) A description of any required Department of Defense 
     actions to establish a unit of the National Guard in American

                   THE ARMED FORCES IN CHILD CUSTODY 
                   DETERMINATIONS.

     analysis comparing the quality, cost, and timeliness of 
     personnel security clearance investigations and 
     reinvestigations for employees and contractor personnel of 
     the Department of Defense that are conducted by the Office of 
     Personnel Management with the quality, cost, and timeliness 
     of personnel security clearance investigations and 
     reinvestigations for such personnel that are conducted by

       (2) Elements of analysis.--The analysis under paragraph (1) 
     shall do the following:
       (A) Determine and compare, for each of the Office of 
     Personnel Management and the components of the Department 
     that conduct personnel security investigations as of the date 
     of the analysis, the quality, cost, and timeliness associated 
     with personnel security investigations and reinvestigations

     Secretary shall develop a plan, by not later than October 1, 
     2014, for the transition of personnel security investigations 
     and reinvestigations to the approach preferred by the 
     Secretary.

       (1) Strategy required.--Not later than 180 days after the 
     date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Defense,

     decreasing unauthorized disclosures of classified 
     information, lowering costs, increasing efficiencies, and 
     enabling and encouraging reciprocity.
       (2) Consideration of analysis.--In developing the strategy 
     under paragraph (1), the Secretary and the Directors shall 
     consider the results of the analysis required by subsection 
     (a) and the results of any ongoing reviews of recent 
     unauthorized disclosures of national security information.
       (3) Metrics.--
       (A) Metrics required.--In developing the strategy required 
     by paragraph (1), the Secretary and the Directors shall

       (B) Elimination or reduction, where possible, of the use of 
     databases and information sources that cannot be accessed and 
     processed automatically electronically, or modification of 
     such databases and information sources, if appropriate and 
     cost-effective, to enable electronic access and processing.
       (C) Access and analysis of government, publically 
     available, and commercial data sources, including social 
     media, that provide independent information pertinent to 
     adjudication guidelines and termination standards to improve

     and reinvestigations.
       (D) Use of government-developed and commercial technology 
     for continuous monitoring and evaluation of government and 
     commercial data sources that can identify and flag 
     information pertinent to hiring and clearance determinations.
       (E) Standardization of forms used for routine reporting 
     required of cleared personnel (such as travel, foreign 
     contacts, and financial disclosures) and use of continuous 
     monitoring technology to access databases containing such

     reportable data and events.
       (F) Establishment of an authoritative central repository of 
     personnel security information that is accessible 
     electronically at multiple levels of classification and 
     eliminates technical barriers to rapid access to information 
     necessary for eligibility determinations and reciprocal 
     recognition thereof, including the ability to monitor the 
     status of an individual and any events related to the 
     continued eligibility of such individual for employment or 
     clearance during intervals between investigations.
       (G) Elimination or reduction of the scope of, or alteration 
     of the schedule for, periodic reinvestigations of cleared 
     personnel, when such action is appropriate in light of the 
     information provided by continuous monitoring or evaluation 
     technology.
       (H) Electronic integration of personnel security processes 
     and information systems with insider threat detection and 
     monitoring systems, and pertinent law enforcement, 
     counterintelligence and intelligence information, for threat 
     detection and correlation, including those processes and 
     systems operated by components of the Department of Defense 
     for purposes of local security, workforce management, or 
     other related purposes.
       (5) Risk-based monitoring.--The strategy required by 
     paragraph (1) shall--
       (A) include the development of a risk-based approach to 
     monitoring and reinvestigation that prioritizes which cleared 
     individuals shall be subject to frequent reinvestigations and 
     random checks, such as the personnel with the broadest access 
     to classified information or with access to the most 
     sensitive classified information, including information 
     technology specialists or other individuals with such broad 
     access commonly known as ``super users'';
       (B) ensure that if the system of continuous monitoring for 
     all cleared individuals described in paragraph (4)(D) is 
     implemented in phases, such system shall be implemented on a 
     priority basis for the individuals prioritized under 
     subparagraph (A); and
       (C) ensure that the activities of individuals prioritized 
     under subparagraph (A) shall be monitored especially closely.
       (d) Reciprocity of Clearances.--The Secretary of Defense 
     and the Director of National Intelligence shall jointly 
     ensure the reciprocity of personnel security clearances among 
     positions requiring personnel holding secret, top secret, or 
     sensitive compartmented information clearances, to the 
     maximum extent feasible consistent with national security 
     requirements.
       (e) Comptroller General Review.--
       (1) Review required.--Not later than 150 days after the 
     date of the enactment of this Act, the Comptroller General of

     required by paragraph (1) shall be to identify the following:
       (A) Differences between the metrics used by the Department

     security clearances in granting reciprocity for security 
     clearances, and the manner in which such differences can be 
     harmonized.
       (B) The extent to which existing Federal Investigative 
     Standards are relevant, complete, and sufficient for guiding 
     agencies and individual investigators as they conduct their 
     security clearance background investigations.
       (C) The processes agencies have implemented to ensure 
     quality in the security clearance background investigation 
     process.

     implemented outcome-focused performance measures to track the 
     quality of security clearance investigations and any insights 
     from these measures.
       (E) The processes agencies have implemented for resolving 
     incomplete or subpar investigations, and the actions taken 
     against government employees and contractor personnel who 
     have demonstrated a consistent failure to abide by quality 
     assurance measures.
       (3) Report.--Not later than 180 days after the date of the 
     enactment of this Act, the Comptroller General shall submit 
     to the appropriate committees of Congress a report on the

     satellite services through multi-year acquisition approaches;
       (2) an analysis of the risks associated with such 
     acquisition approaches;
       (3) an identification of methods to address planning, 
     programming, budgeting, and execution challenges to such 
     approaches, including methods to address potential 
     termination liability or cancellation costs generally 
     associated with multi-year contracts;
       (4) an identification of any changes needed in the 
     requirements development and approval processes of the 
     Department of Defense to facilitate effective and efficient 
     implementation of such strategy, including an identification 
     of any consolidation of requirements for such services across 
     the Department that may achieve increased buying power and 
     efficiency; and

     control mission of the Department of Defense. Such report 
     shall include--
       (1) an identification of existing offensive and defensive 
     space control systems, policies, and technical possibilities 
     of future systems;

     noncompliance, engage in future nuclear arms control 
     negotiations with the government of the noncompliant nation; 
     and

     capabilities that will ensure the safety, security, 
     reliability, and performance of the nuclear forces of the 
     United States at the levels required by the New START Treaty;

       (4) underpin deterrence by meeting the requirements for 
     hedging against possible international developments or 
     technical problems, in accordance with the policies of the 
     United States.

       (1) Congress is committed to providing the resources needed 
     to achieve the objectives stated in subsection (a) at a 
     minimum at the level set forth in the 10-year plan provided 
     to Congress on an annual basis pursuant to section 1043 of

       (1) advancements in air-to-air and surface-to-air weapons 
     systems by foreign powers will require increasingly 
     sophisticated long-range strike capabilities;
       (2) upgrading the existing bomber aircraft fleet of the 
     United States consisting of B-1B, B-2, and B-52 bomber 
     aircraft must remain a high budget priority in order to 
     maintain the combat effectiveness of such fleet; and

     currently plans or that might be required over the duration 
     of the New START Treaty to protect the United States pursuant 
     to the National Missile Defense Act of 1999, or to protect

     views robust strategic defensive capabilities as undermining 
     the overall strategic balance, and stands ready to cooperate 
     with the Russian Federation on strategic defensive 
     capabilities, as long as such cooperation is aimed at 
     fostering and in no way constrains the defensive capabilities 
     of both sides'';
       (3) any missile defense cooperation with the Russian 
     Federation should not in any way limit United States' or 
     NATO's missile defense capabilities, and should be mutually 
     beneficial and reciprocal in nature;
       (4) the United States should not provide the Russian 
     Federation with sensitive missile defense information that 
     would in any way compromise United States national security, 
     including ``hit-to-kill'' technology and telemetry data for 
     missile defense interceptors or target vehicles; and
       (5) the sovereignty of the United States and its ability to 
     unilaterally pursue its own missile defense program shall be

                Subtitle F--Sense of Congress Provisions

     SEC. 1751. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON COMMANDING OFFICER 
                   RESPONSIBILITY FOR COMMAND CLIMATE FREE OF 
                   RETALIATION.

       It is the sense of Congress that--

[[Page H7809]]

       (1) commanding officers in the Armed Forces are responsible 
     for establishing a command climate in which sexual assault 
     allegations are properly managed and fairly evaluated and in 
     which a victim can report criminal activity, including sexual 
     assault, without fear of retaliation, including ostracism and 
     group pressure from other members of the command;
       (2) the failure of commanding officers to maintain such a 
     command climate is an appropriate basis for relief from their 
     command positions; and
       (3) senior officers should evaluate subordinate commanding 
     officers on their performance in establishing a command 
     climate as described in paragraph (1) during the regular 
     periodic counseling and performance appraisal process 
     prescribed by the Armed Force concerned for inclusion in the 
     systems of records maintained and used for assignment and 
     promotion selection boards.

     SEC. 1752. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON DISPOSITION OF CHARGES 
                   INVOLVING CERTAIN SEXUAL MISCONDUCT OFFENSES 
                   UNDER THE UNIFORM CODE OF MILITARY JUSTICE 
                   THROUGH COURTS-MARTIAL.

       (a) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) any charge regarding an offense specified in subsection 
     (b) should be disposed of by court-martial, rather than by 
     non-judicial punishment or administrative action; and
       (2) in the case of any charge regarding an offense 
     specified in subsection (b) that is disposed of by non-
     judicial punishment or administrative action, rather than by 
     court-martial, the disposition authority should include in 
     the case file a justification for the disposition of the 
     charge by non-judicial punishment or administrative action, 
     rather than by court-martial.
       (b) Covered Offenses.--An offense specified in this 
     subsection is any of the following offenses under chapter 47 
     of title 10, United States Code (the Uniform Code of Military 
     Justice):
       (1) Rape or sexual assault under subsection (a) or (b) of 
     section 920 of such title (article 120 of the Uniform Code of 
     Military Justice).
       (2) Forcible sodomy under section 925 of such title 
     (article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice).
       (3) An attempt to commit an offense specified in paragraph 
     (1) or (2), as punishable under section 880 of such title 
     (article 80 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice).

     SEC. 1753. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON THE DISCHARGE IN LIEU OF 
                   COURT-MARTIAL OF MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES 
                   WHO COMMIT SEX-RELATED OFFENSES.

       It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) the Armed Forces should be exceedingly sparing in 
     discharging in lieu of court-martial members of the Armed 
     Forces who have committed rape, sexual assault, forcible 
     sodomy, or attempts to commit such offenses, and should do so 
     only when the facts of the case clearly warrant such 
     discharge;
       (2) whenever possible, the victims of offenses referred to 
     in paragraph (1) shall be consulted prior to the 
     determination regarding whether to discharge the members who 
     committed such offenses;
       (3) convening authorities should consider the views of 
     victims of offenses referred to in paragraph (1) when 
     determining whether to discharge the members who committed 
     such offenses in lieu of trying such members by court-
     martial; and
       (4) the discharge of any member who is discharged as 
     described in paragraph (1) should be characterized as Other 
     Than Honorable.
