As background, American military personnel found unfit for duty due to Service-related illnesses or injuries are potentially eligible for placement on the TDRL. A Veteran’s presence on the TDRL means that the conditions surrounding his or her particular disability have been deemed unstable by a Physical Evaluation Board and may require periodic re-examination during a period not to exceed five years in order for them to retain the associated compensation benefits. IWA’s contract, a single award Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) effort valued in excess of $17M over four years, represented the first time that clinical and human services staff outside of the Government had been engaged to ensure timely re-exam of the Army Veterans on the TDRL. The IWA team performed the comprehensive evaluations, systematically compiled information on TDRL outcomes and where and when appropriate, provided counseling related to the Army’s disability rating decisions.
