An inspection is conducted every two years for all other mission-essential or vulnerable areas, for other activities
as directed by the local commander, and for ROTC facilities storing only .22 caliber weapons. The biennial
requirement to inspect ROTC facilities storing only .22 caliber weapons is eliminated if such facilities are
inspected by qualified ROTC region physical security personnel during the annual formal inspection (AFI).
ADP activities are inspected as follows:
Critically-sensitive ADP activities or facilities are inspected every 18 months in conjunction with the
accreditation procedures prescribed in AR 380-19.
Highly-sensitive, sensitive, or nonsensitive ADP activities are inspected every 24 months. Inspections of
these ADP activities or facilities is incorporated into scheduled physical security inspections of the individual
activity or facility.
When there is any change in the unit or activity that may impact on existing physical security plans.
When there is any indication or reported incident of significant or recurring criminal activity.
More frequently at the discretion of the commander.
When possible, inspections should be scheduled early enough in the fiscal year so that resource requirements
can be identified and included in the PPBES cycle.
Physical security inspectors must be granted access to Army facilities, records, and information based on their
need to know. Such access must be consistent with the inspectors' security clearance and with the provisions of
DA Form 2806-1-R (Physical Security Inspection Report) is used for all physical security inspections. An
example of a completed DA Form 2806-1-R is shown in Figure 3-6. The form may be reproduced locally on 8
1/2-by 11-inch paper. It is designed to cover a variety of activities, and it may be supplemented to cover unique
Copies of the completed DA Form 2806-1-R are provided to the unit inspected and to the installation physical
Correcting Physical Security Deficiencies
Findings noted on DA Forms 2806-R or DA Forms 2806-1-R may be used for programming funds and for
submitting work orders.
The submission of work order requests or requests for telecommunications support does not resolve a report
finding. Compensatory measures within available resources must be placed in effect pending completion of work
order requests. Findings for which work orders and telecommunications requirements were submitted must be
reported on later physical security inspections until the work is completed.
Findings that are beyond the capabilities of the local commander to correct because of a lack of resources are
reported to the proper higher commander for possible assistance.
A report of the corrective actions taken for both surveys and inspections is required by the installation
commander, and is attached as an exhibit to the appropriate report. DA Forms 2806-1-R are filed with the
corresponding DA Forms 2806-R. These records are maintained in the active files of the unit or activity inspected
until the completion of the next physical security inspection, and then they are destroyed.
