    Integrated Disability Evaluation System (IDES)

    The Integrated Disability Evaluation System (IDES) is a collaborative process that requires coordination across Commands, the Department of Defense (DoD), the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and other agencies. The success of the program is based on a consistent order of operations, clear channels of communication, and well understood stakeholder roles and responsibilities.
