  4. Establishes the Defense Equal Opportunity Council (DEOC), the Civilian EEO Review Board, and SEP Boards.
  5. Authorizes the issuance of DoD Instructions and Manuals to implement this Directive and guidance from standard-setting Agencies such as EEOC and OPM, consistent with DoD 5025.1-M (reference (y)).
