RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN directs Fleet-wide implementation of the Sexual
Assault Incident Response Oversight (SAIRO) (8-day) Report, required by law,
which accounts for actions taken, or in progress, to provide the necessary
care and support to the victim of an assault, verify referral of the
allegation of sexual assault to the appropriate Military Criminal
Investigative Office (MCIO), and to provide initial notification to the
service member*s chain of command as required by reference (a). The SAIRO
(8-day) Report is a one-time Situational Report (SITREP) required within
eight calendar days following the initial OPREP-3 Navy Blue or OPREP-3 Navy
Unit SITREP for an adult sexual assault. The SITREP format mandated by this
NAVADMIN is an interim measure pending the release of a fillable form. The
fillable form will be available later this year and will replace the SITREP
format imposed by this NAVADMIN.
2. Effective immediately, the SAIRO (8-day) SITREP is required when an adult
sexual assault is reported involving a service member victim or a service
member alleged offender (including reserve component members who were
performing active service or inactive duty training during the time of the
assault) per reference (b). This requirement only applies to unrestricted
reports made to a Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC), Deployed
Resiliency Counselor (DRC), or Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Victim
Advocate (SAPR VA) and to independent investigations initiated by the MCIO
per references (c) through (e). A SAIRO (8-day) SITREP is not prepared for
sexual assaults involving Family Advocacy Program cases, consistent with
references (f) through (h).
3. An individual, one-time SAIRO (8-day) SITREP is required for each victim
involved, regardless of affiliation, status or location of the victim or
alleged offender. Per reference (a), the SAIRO (8-day) SITREP is required
for all unrestricted reports of sexual assault incidents, including incidents
(being reported at the present time) that occurred before the enlistment or
commissioning of the service member victim, with the understanding that some
alleged offender information may not be accessible or available.
4. The eight-day requirement begins upon initial notification and resultant
initial OPREP-3 Navy Blue or OPREP-3 Navy Unit SITREP of any of the below:
a. An unrestricted report is made to a SARC, DRC, SAPR VA, or Unit SAPR
VA (UVA) via a Victim Reporting Preference Statement (DD Form 2910). The
SARC will contact the victim*s commanding officer (CO) within 24 hours, or 48
hours if there are extenuating circumstances in deployed environments. This
requirement does not affect the preexisting requirement for the SARC to
contact the installation CO per references (c) and (d).
b. The victim elects to convert a previously filed restricted report to
an unrestricted report via DD Form 2910.
c. The MCIO notifies the CO that an independent investigation has been
initiated by the MCIO.
5. For a SAIRO (8-day) SITREP triggered by an unrestricted report of sexual
assault, the SARC will be responsible for providing all victim information
and the MCIO will provide the incident data and investigation information.
For a SAIRO (8-day) SITREP triggered by an independent MCIO investigation,
the MCIO will be responsible for providing the available information.
Incident data shall not be acquired through a command-directed investigation
which is prohibited for sexual assaults in accordance with (IAW) references
(a) through (e). At a minimum, the CO preparing the SAIRO (8-day) SITREP
will provide preliminary information of the incident with the understanding
that some victim or alleged offender information may not be accessible or
6. Restrictions. Privacy is of the utmost importance. Information
contained in the SAIRO (8-day) SITREP shall not be requested from the victim
and such information shall be limited in distribution to personnel with an
official need-to-know while ensuring control of sensitive information.
Personally identifiable information (PII) shall not be included. The SARC
will report non-PII concerning sexual assault incidents (without information
that could reasonably lead to personal identification of the victim or the
alleged offender). For example, depending on the size of the unit or the
gender make-up of the unit, it may not be appropriate to include gender,
rank, or grade.
7. Reporting Responsibility. Without disclosing protected communications
and victim confidentiality, the SAIRO (8-day) SITREP will be prepared and
submitted by the CO with input from the SARC and the MCIO (e.g., NCIS) IAW
reference (a) and as follows:
a. In reports involving a service member victim or a service member
alleged offender, the following will be responsible for submitting the SAIRO
(1) The CO of the victim and alleged offender if the victim and
alleged offender are assigned to the same command.
(2) The CO of the victim if the victim and the alleged offender are
assigned to different commands.
(3) The first O-6 or above Immediate Superior in Command (ISIC) in
the chain of command if the CO is the alleged offender.
b. The CO of the victim involving a service member victim and a non-
service member alleged offender.
c. The CO of the alleged service member offender involving a civilian
victim will prepare and submit a SAIRO (8-day) SITREP containing available
8. Notification requirements. In addition to notification requirements in
reference (i), the SAIRO (8-day) SITREP will be sent to the below listed
a. The installation CO, if such incidents occurred on or in the vicinity
of a military installation.
b. The chain of command of the victim and/or alleged offender, up to and
including the first Flag officer.
c. The ISIC of the service member alleged offender if the alleged
offender is a CO or Flag officer.
9. The SAIRO (8-day) SITREP will be submitted no later than eight calendar
days following the initial OPREP-3 Navy Blue or OPREP-3 Navy Unit SITREP
required by reference (i). At a minimum, the CO preparing the SAIRO (8-day)
SITREP will provide preliminary information of the incident, with the
understanding that some victim or alleged offender information may not be
accessible or available.
