  • Closing Guidance on Congressional Letters

Congressional letters from the Honorable Matthew P. Donovan, USD (P&R), should be closed with the following statement:


“Thank you for your continued strong support of our Service members, civilian workforce, and families.”


***We can use “veterans” as appropriate, but generally only when a letter is about veterans or when veterans are in the Committee of jurisdiction.

The Correspondence and Task Management System (CATMS) is a flexible and scalable system that allows component users to create, delegate, assign, respond, and research a knowledge repository linked with task and correspondence accurately and efficiently. By leveraging powerful template and automation workflows, tasking is streamlined which allows decisional information to be disseminated quickly. The ability to disseminate tasker information vertically and/or horizontally provides more time for users to complete action requests. 

Note: For information about CATMS at DoDEA, and to arrange for a CATMS account, contact Ms. Lisa Ellison, 571-372-5831.
