Developed to meet requirements set forth in the Fiscal Year (FY) 2009 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the Defense Sexual Assault Incident Database (DSAID) is the Department’s authoritative, centralized case-level database used to collect and maintain information on sexual assaults involving members of the Armed Forces. DoD SAPRO operates DSAID and works collaboratively with the Services to implement and sustain the system.
Sexual Assault Response Coordinators (SARCs) use DSAID to provide comprehensive and standardized victim case management. Additionally, the DoD uses DSAID to conduct oversight, inform Department and Service-level SAPR program planning and analysis, and meet Congressional reporting requirements.

DoD SAPRO is committed to safeguarding sensitive information. Sound security measures are in place to protect access and information contained in the database. DSAID complies with DoD and federal regulations regarding information assurance, privacy, and records management.
