JFCOM will make recommendations to JS on global sourcing. CJCS is the Global Force Manager and will make all decisions on force providing. JFCOM is still developing the procedures and resources required to execute this mission. COCOM‟s require education and applicable training on procedures associated with GFM, particularly as it might impact COCOMassigned forces. Impact: COCOM‟s unclear on their role in GFM Submitted By: EUCOM, TRANSCOM Endstate: COCOM‟s fully educated on role in GFM mission Status: Per 4 May 05 SecDef Memorandum, CDRJFCOM is designated as the primary Joint Force Provider; JFCOM is responsible for identifying and recommending sourcing solutions from all forces (except forces designated by CDRSOCOM, CDRTRANSCOM and CDRSTRATCOM) to the CJCS. All sourcing solutions will be coordinated with the Military Departments and other CoComs.

Discussion: Align resources with statutory joint training responsibilities. Operational, C2, Theater, and Training Transformation change training effort and costs. COCOMs are not staffed to fully implement the Joint Training System nor to adequately participate in the transformation processes. Training Program Assessment and Lessons Learned Programs are under resourced. Resources are needed to enable interagency and other non-DoD participation in joint training and to exploit JNTC. Components cannot accurately program JFHQ training funding. Impact: Critical joint training may not be accomplished to standard. JFHQ (COCOM JFHQ, JTF HQ, Functional Component HQ) and joint forces are less prepared for integrated global operations. T2 and C2 Transformation cannot be properly executed. Submitted By: HQ USEUCOM, EPOC-JTRE, Col Dave Beydler Endstate: COCOMs have access to adequate resources to plan and execute their joint training programs, including programming funding for JFHQ training funding. COCOM training funding is competed outside of Executive Agent POM and fenced within Executive Agent budget. Status: 1) COCOMs have identified funding requirements; 2) JS/J-7 worked this issue under the TC AoA Alt 5 process in concert with OSD and JFCOM; Result: Funding will be provided to provide distributed manpower support to COCOM training program in FY06. OPR: JS J7; OCR: OSD (R&T) Recommendation: Continue to Monitor 5 28 Mar 06/car J O I NT WJTC 04 Issues F CH IE F F S OF S TA 04JT-02 (BOGrp 1): Independently developed automated support tools need management and oversight to ensure they are complementary and will collectively meet DoD requirements. Discussion: Automated support tools (JTIMS, JDRAT,...) are JMETL/AMETL based, yet current configurations use different task terminology and methodologies for addressing UJTL deviations. JS J7 developing an effective approach to include automated procedures for UJTL updates. Policy needed on information and intelligence data sharing across military and civilian organizations (TIM2 community). Impact: Training and readiness community needs an integrated suite of automated support tools that support collaborative planning and effective knowledge management. Integrated tool suite must use consistent terminology and system interfaces should provide data exchange that support single data entry for use in multiple applications. T2 objectives will be difficult to meet if these issues are not addressed as JTIMS, ESORTS, and UJTL development efforts continue. Submitted By: USSTRATCOM / OP70, MAJ Coughlin. Endstate: Automated support tools that are independently developed to meet specific requirements will have coordinated management and oversight to ensure these tools will collectively meet the T2 objectives and training / readiness requirements. Status: NexGen JTIMS SPIRAL 2 is integrated with DRRS to dynamically pull the COCOM/CSA J/AMETLs. JDEIS is the authoritative source for the UJTL, Service Task Lists, and Joint Capabilities. A future NexGen JTIMS SPIRAL will provide the capability to dynamically send the Training Proficiency Assessments (TPAs) generated in NexGen JTIMS to the training tab of DRRS. OPR: JS J7; OCRs: OSD P&R, Joint Staff J8, JFCOM, USPACOM 6 Recommendation: Continue to monitor as JTIMS spiral developments are fielded 28 Mar 06/car J O I NT WJTC 04 Issues F CH IE F F S OF S TA 04JT-05 (BOGrp 1): Accelerate the development of doctrine and TTP to support emergent capabilities used in real-world operations. Discussion: Per Joint Training Policy, joint training is to be conducted to agreed joint doctrine. Current rapid transformations are establishing new constructs, e.g., SJFHQ, JIACG, Intergovernmental Operations, Homeland Defense, etc., with no doctrine and minimal TTP, inhibiting effective training, Impact: Training events are transformed into experimentation events that inform the concept development but do little to improve training audience readiness. Submitted by: HQ USEUCOM, EPOC-JTRE, Col Dave Beydler. Endstate: JS and JFCOM have implemented rapid doctrine and TTP development and approval processes that provide and update useable interim doctrine and TTP for emergent transformational concepts as baseline for operational employment and associated training. Status: JEDD has implemented a new change process for expediting doctrine and TTP development approval processes. A considerable amount of doctrine, however, is being held up due to lack of policy or changing policy at the OSD level. New policy described in CJCSI 5120.02, 30 Nov 04. See Enclosure C, paragraph 8.

Discussion: Active joint customer (COCOM, CSA) participation in the processes of enabling capabilities (JNTC, JKDDC, JAEC, TIM2, TC AoA, JTFCB, etc.) requires easy portal access to working group process. Entry requirements need to be clearly described by T2 capability lead and understood by Joint customer in order to enable effective joint training. Communication among OSD, JS and COCOMs\CSAs does not adequately inform the COCOMs\CSAs of process schedules associated with building and maintaining critical enablers. In addition, where COCOMs\CSAs do have visibility, they are not adequately resourced to insert informed input into each of the processes. Impact: T2 implementation is sub-optimized by inadequate input from the user. Submitted By: USTRANSCOM, Major Jim Stanford Endstate: T2 enablers can be accessed through straight forward presentation of joint customer need to the T2 capability leadership. T2 enablers have clearly described „on/off ramps‟ for joint customers to easily access T2 benefits in development of their joint training programs. T2 FOC is fully optimized Status: The Training Transformation Forum provides easy portal access to all T2 enabling capabilities through one website http://www.t2net.org/forums/index.cfm. The T2 calendar, meeting data, roster, briefs and publications. This portal also provides links to all three T2 capabilities and the TIM2 task force.

Discussion: Joint & Service Lessons Learned currently captured by a number of independent groups, agencies & activities into a variety of non-linked databases. Joint Trainers require timely access to Lessons Learned analysis, specifically tailored to support the requirements development process/JTS made available through a single access point. COCOM‟s understaffed for Lessons Learned support in planning for training; not staffed for active collection. Impact: Lessons Learned not incorporated into training objective development and event planning. Submitted By: COCOM‟s Endstate: Easy access to all lessons learned by entire training support community. Status: The Joint Staff is conducting technical evaluations on the two systems scoring the highest ratings from the Best of Breed Survey (LMS and ALMS). Milestone: Technical Evaluations to be completed by 10 March 06.

Issue: COCOM (Joint Staff, USTRANSCOM, USSTRATCOM, USSOCOM, USJFCOM) support is essential to all Regional CoCom CPX exercises. Impact: Current funding methodology fails to recognize functional COCOM costs in support of CPX events. Endstate: A funded CPX package consisting of event and support costs. Submitted By: USTRANSCOM Status: The issue is the funding of TRANSCOM functional support to the Geographic COCOMs. Currently only SOCOM receives funding (through the Bronze Arrow program) to support the Geographic COCOMs. A change to the Chairman's instruction governing the JEP is required, along with the agreement of the other COCOMs, and OSD. Since JEP funding is limited in FY07 any additional funding to support this effort may not be available until FY08.

Discussion: The National Security Strategy requires the development, coordination, and application of the elements and instruments of national power to achieve national security objectives. In order to accomplish this requirement, USCENTCOM must have senior leadership and staff officers that are educated and trained in the coordination and integration of regional interagency activities. Impact: Without an interagency education and training program, personnel will continue to conduct ad hoc interagency coordination of doctrinal interagency tasks. Submitted By: LtCol Brad McAllister, JIACG, 651-1960, firstname.lastname@example.org Endstate: DOD provides USCENTCOM with senior leadership and staff officers who are educated and trained to accomplish ST 8.5 - Coordinate and Integrate Regional Interagency Activities. Status: The CJCSI Education Policy (1800.01C) revised, published 22 Dec 05. National Security Strategy remains a primary learning area. Curriculums will continue to undergo updates to reflect the latest information. The OPMEP addresses learning requirements at the Intermediate, Senior level Colleges as well as all GO/FO courses. Individual Training topics related to interagency requirements must be developed and addressed through Joint Training Policy and Guidance. TIM2 has developed a concept paper that lays out a framework of topic modules across the career continuum presented in CJCSI 1800.01C. It suggests the “who, what, and when” for learning; the “how and where” of implementation will be determined later. The modular structure and relative indicated division of time are designed to facilitate use in both short- and longer-term settings, both resident and via Advanced Distance Learning, and for individual training, JPME settings, and for self-development OPR: Joint Staff J7, JKDDC & JEDD; OCR : JFCOM, J7 Recommendation: Continue to monitor 12 28 Mar 06/car J O I NT WJTC 04 Issues F CH IE F F S OF S TA 04SOUTHCOM04: Reduce/streamline the Developing Countries Combined Exercise Program (DCCEP) process. Discussion: Combatant Commands submit a two-year DCCEP plan through JS-J7 to OSD annually NLT 31 March via msg (forty to fifty pages). OSD approval is historically received in Aug/Sep timeframe via msg. Approval for Out of Cycle (emerging, mission critical) requirements are submitted through the same lengthy process and many times, approval is not received on time. Impact: The current process requires extensive man hours for USSOUTHCOM, Service Components and MILGPs. Additionally, it hinders the commanders flexibility and ability to support mission critical, short fused, emerging requirements. Submitted By: SCJ34, Ms. Karen Castleton, 305-437-3588, Endstate: DCCEP procedures are outlined in Title 10, US Code, Section 2010. DCCEP funds must be approved by the SecDef in accordance with federal law. The funds are allocated from the COCOM executive agents. DCCEP and DCCEP Out-of-Cycle request procedures are managed by OSD and are as streamlined as federal (Title 10) law allows.

Issue: No process for maintaining currency of joint education and training Impact: Today‟s staff officer faces an unprecedented rate of change across the political-military environment. Education and training programs must dynamically update to maintain currency and relevance. The integration of these processes and systems is ad hoc…leaving individual joint staff officer preparation trailing the needs of the field. Plan of Action: JS, J7 meet with educators and trainers to develop a process to rapidly update joint education and training courses. Submitted By: BOGrp 2 Endstate: Joint education and training programs systematically update their learning objectives and courses to keep up with the rapidly changing pol-mil environment. Status: The Joint Faculty Education Conference (JFEC) was conducted 21-23 July 05 and developed 10 FY05 Special Areas of [JPME] Emphasis . A supplementary conference was held 7 Sep 05 at the AWC for information briefing exposure. Military Education Coordination Council recommended and the Chairman approved seven FY06 Special Areas of Emphasis. JFEC 06 is scheduled for July 06. J-7 JTD, working with J-7 JEDD, is conducting a high level assessment of some existing critical joint billets to identify required tasks and correlating available training and education programs that prepare personnel to serve in the joint billets. The JKDDC JMO will conduct the task analysis, identify specific available training and education programs, and identify gaps.

Issue: The joint community does not fully understand the capability and potential of the Joint Training System (JTS) and Joint Training Information and Management System (JTIMS) to enhance warfighting proficiency. JTS and JTIMS familiarization and orientation are not embedded in the Professional Military Education (PME) Continuum. Impact: JTS cannot be fully implemented if not fully understood. Submitted By: JFCOM Endstate: Joint community fully understands JTS and JTIMS. Status: JKDDC is developing an advanced distance learning course overview on the Joint Training System. A JS J-7/JFCOM J-7 approved course outline/lesson plan exists and all that remains is for JKDDC to build the JTS overview course and field it online. With the transfer of oversight to JFCOM, and the realignment of contract support, a new delivery schedule has not been established.

Issue: Current training assessment results are not being briefed/reported to leadership in a usable format. Assessment results may not be formatted/structured in a way that reflects leadership‟s priorities/concerns/focus. While no universal assessment/ evaluation tools currently exist, tools such as those developed at JFCOM and PACOM may serve as interim workarounds until JTIMS is fully developed. Also, some users expressed strong interest in fully independent tools, which might then link to JTIMS. Impact: Assessment results may receive limited leadership attention or be misunderstood. Increased flexibility in assessing non-JTIMS based activities. Current processes and outputs may lead to limited leadership attention or be misunderstood. Lack of mature tools increases staff workload and decreases training assessment efficacy. Submitted By: WJTC02 Breakout Team-2/3 Endstate: Development of a straightforward, relatable, and easily executable training assessment reporting product(s).

Discussion: JNTC should be employed for COCOM and Component sponsored training in addition to scheduled JNTC events and those events that JWFC can support. To accomplish this, the JNTC technical solutions must not require JWFC support; sufficient theater expertise must be developed in each COCOM to employ JNTC to design, build and execute training; and both COCOMs and Components must be able to program funding to pay for the costs associated with use of JNTC. Impact: Training not supported by JNTC infrastructure and training enablers may be sub-optimized and not have requisite joint context while JNTC investment is under-utilized. Submitted by: HQ USEUCOM, EPOC-JTRE, Col Dave Beydler. Endstate: COCOMs and Service Components have established the expertise, resources, and procedures to routinely employ JNTC to enhance joint training and provide requisite joint context for service training. Status: The JNTC program has enabled decentralized execution of training through the Program Centric approach; fielding of the JNTC Support Element, their coordination with JWFC Desk Officers for additional training support, and validation of training requirements through the accreditation process. JNTC Certification is standardizing technical access and support.

Discussion: COCOMs & Service Components are required to follow the processes of the JTS, CRS, & DRRS. Each process has a reporting requirement, i.e. training/readiness assessments, JQRR, & ESORTS. JMETL is the common reporting theme. Among commands should exist commonality in standards in terms of DOTMLPF. COCOMs & Service Components are developing or have developed standards for their JMETs. These standards are radically different among commands. Propose Joint Staff identify the commonality, among commands, in standards in terms of DOTMLPF & create baseline JMET standards to report against. Impact: If not done, training/readiness assessments, JQRR, & ESORTS could display data for CJCS & SECDEF that is not comparable, not complementary, & disjointed.

Discussion: JFCOM provides operational train-up & exercise support to COCOMs. Historically, this support has been provided to two major COCOM events per FY. COCOM‟s typically require JFCOM support for more than “2 per year” but must compete with other COCOM‟s and JFCOM Components for support. COCOM‟s are not resourced to provide internal assets for operational train-up & exercise support & are forced to do so “out of hide” to ensure events are executed successfully. Current JFCOM resources cannot satisfy COCOM requirements. Increases required for Observer/Trainers, contractor support and deployable M&S equipment. Initiatives such as Pacific Warfighting Center, EUCOM use of Warrior Prep Center and JNTC network decrease reliance on JFCOM assets. Additional Observer/Trainers and contractor support required to meet COCOM requirements. Impact: COCOM operational train-up events & major exercises are not as efficient or effective & would benefit from JWFC support. Resources taken “out of hide” to execute events are a training distractor. Submitted By: COCOM‟s Endstate: JFCOM support to appropriate number of COCOM training events (all forms of training) Status: JFCOM provides Joint operational training to Combatant Commanders. This support has historically been limited to two supported exercises per fiscal year. Component Command‟s typically request more support from the JWFC than the two supported. Current USJFCOM resources cannot satisfy increased demand for observer/trainers, contractor support, and deployable models & simulations equipment. - JWFC submitted a Joint Force Trainer Requirement during the FY07-11 IPL requesting an increase in military observer trainers and additional funding to increase the number of contractors available to support Joint Training requirements.

JFCOM, as the joint force integrator and experimenter, also requires the training environment to assess capabilities such as DJC2, Blue Force Tracking and SJFHQ. The need for joint context and resource limitations require some test and prototyping activity in training. JFCOM has developed a manual that outlines the process the test and experimentation community will use for integrating into JFCOM sponsored and supported training. JFCOM could serve as “one stop shop” for DOT&E and experimentation community for integration into training. Impact: DOT&E forced to engage multiple COCOM‟s to search for venues.

Discussion: Travel requirement to participate in working groups >100 days/yr. No funding or government billet for a full time doctrine position. JS J-7 proposed a Joint DOTMLPF Change Recommendation (DCR) for Doctrine Development in Oct 2005, which would have included funding for Joint Doctrine Specialists, but it was withdrawn in Feb 2006. Impact: USPACOM is unable to fully support the Joint Doctrine Development process. Submitted By: USPACOM End state: Joint Doctrine Specialists funded and fielded to COCOMs. POA&M: USPACOM supports JS J-7 efforts to fund a Joint Doctrine Specialist at the COCOM level. OPR/OCR: JS/J-7 32 28 Mar 06/car J O I NT Directed Training Requirements F CH IE F F S OF S TA Issue 06COCOM-01 : Resourcing Expanded Joint Training Events Discussion: • New exercise requirements dictated from above COCOM level, i.e.Homeland Defense; Proliferation Security Initiative; Pandemic Influenza; Global Peace Operations Initiative, etc. The task, either stated or implied, is to create new exercise venues (in reaction to new real world events) for each of these requirements. • Unified Command Plan directs combatant commanders to certify HQ staffs designated to serve as JTF staffs and functional components. Increased costs include: diversion of one contractor man-year (minimum) for program development/maintenance, $650K in additional funding for SJFHQ-Pacific as the JTF trainer and a third exercise support / DTT package from JFCOM/JWFC Impact: 1) Increases challenge for Combatant Commands unable to comply with Sec Def guidance to reduce PERSTEMPO due to exercises. 2) Watered down exercise program with diminishing usefulness based on more exercises with lower budget. 3) Without additional resources, a “make-do” implementation will detract from the level of JTF training and operational readiness. Submitted By: USPACOM and USEUCOM End state: POA&M: • CDRUSPACOM has directed that these new requirements be addressed through existing USPACOM, Service, or other nations‟ exercises as appropriate. • Joint Staff/J-7 must help to “hold the line” on exercise program growth. Funding be provided to assist exercise Executive Agents incorporate emerging exercise requirements and implementing JTF Certification Program. OPR/OCR: JS J-7/OSD(P&R) 33 28 Mar 06/car J O I NT Program Sustainment Funding F CH IE F F S OF S TA Issue 06EUCOM-02: New programs are implemented without adequate funding added for sustainment. Discussion: New capabilities, innovations, and technologies are emerging (Rel GBR/AUS, JNTC, JLLIS, DRRS). While these are welcome and useful, funding is only provided for their initial development and fielding for the technologies. COCOMs are left on their own to fund and man sustainment of these new mandated technologies. Impact: Decreased funding available for other programs and decreased availability of manning to perform the tasks required for the technologies. Submitted By: USEUCOM End state: Drive-by fieldings eliminated, all new programs fielded only with identified and funded sustainment throughout their life cycle. POA&M: Request development and implementation of a sustainment roadmap for support of current and new technologies throughout their life cycle. OPR/OCR: JS J-7/OSD(P&R) 34 28 Mar 06/car J O I NT JEP O & M Funding Shortfall F CH IE F F S OF S TA Issue 06COCOM-02 : Chairman’s “Strategy Based - Requirements Driven” approach to executing the JEP attempts to provide ample Strategic Lift funding but O&M funding remains insufficient and has a definite impact on the success of exercises and training. Discussion: FY POM Initial Dist. Incremental Funds Shortfall •06 8.046M 4.25M 0 2.1M* •07 8.207M 4.4M 0 1.8M* *PACOM Shortfalls remaining after restructure/reorg. of JEP, dramatic reduction of sim. capability, and reduction of capability to support component and HQ participation in exercise planning process. Impact: Unable to meet Theater Security Cooperation Guidance and conduct fully integrated Joint and Combined training. Important exercises scaled down. Reduced exercise planning support. Training Objectives not met. Average cost for an event has increased nearly half a million dollars. Submitted By: USPACOM and USEUCOM End state: O&M funding fully supports COCOM exercise requirements. POA&M: Supplement Geographic Combatant Commands‟ O&M funding specifically focused on exercises during this fiscal year and provide for future requirements.

If COCOMs are to be effective in improving and expanding participation of these organizations in their training and exercise programs, it is essential to provide funding assistance to these organizations similar to that which is provided to developing countries under DCCEP. Discussion: DOD Directive 3000.05, DOD Support to Stability, Security, Transition and Reconstruction Operations requires COCOMs to “engage relevant U.S. Departments and Agencies, foreign governments and security forces, International Organizations, NGOs, and members of the private sector in stability operations planning, training, and exercises.” Impact: Participation by these organizations is often restricted by SOUTHCOM‟s and the organization‟s resource capacity. Submitted By: USSOUTHCOM End state: Funding designated to support interagency participation in COCOM training/exercise venues. POA&M: Expand the current DCCEP to permit its use for travel and per diem expenses of members of these organizations to participate in CJCS or Joint Exercise Program exercises and planning conferences conducted by the COCOMs. Authorize use of TCA funds for this purpose and provide for increased levels of TCA funding for this purpose. DOD establish an additional COCOM exercise funding support capacity specifically designed to support integration of these organizations in exercises and associated planning conferences. OPR/OCR: JS J7 36 28 Mar 06/car J O I NT IA Simulation Response Capability F CH IE F F S OF S TA Issue 06NORADNORTHCOM-02: Interagency Response/Simulation Capability Discussion: Limited Interagency (Federal, State and local) exercise participation adversely affects exercise design and ability to meet exercise objectives resulting in difficulty in gaining Federal Interagency and State involvement. When participating, Federal, State and local play is typically limited to 1-3 days. Impact: Results in abbreviated exercise and unmet exercise objectives and hinders ability to deploy and fully exercise JTF and JFO. Submitted By: NORAD/NORTHCOM End state: Develop and field Interagency Response/Simulation capability to support joint training and exercises. POA&M: Standardize and use Federal Response Simulation Cell, State Simulation Cell and/or Simulated JFO for exercises.

Discussion: • COCOMs identified requirement to source an organic training and exercise capability in order to: Conduct and manage COCOM specific training (Tailorable required and on-demand COCOM, SJFHQ, JTF and FCC HQ staff individual and collective training); Identify COCOM individual/collective training requirements; and Track and manage individual/staff joint training and readiness. • No additional support via TC AoA Alt 5 provided to the COCOMs to date. COCOM Council of Colonels (COC) unanimous on TC AoA Alt 5 to provide additional contracted support (2-3 individuals) to each COCOM, except JFCOM. JS J7 would fund and provide oversight of additional support to the COCOMs to meet its joint training requirements. COA was briefed subsequently at the JFCOM sponsored Two Star COCOM Training Conference (Feb 05) and there were no objections. COC unanimous again, COA briefed and approved by T2 SAG in Oct 05. • JKDDC products are not addressing the requirement. Centralized development of COCOM specific modules at JFCOM cannot adequately capture unique requirement. Long-identified need for a formal individual training program. JKDDC should address job-specific individual AO training as well as “joint education.” Impact: COCOMs lack the additional support to adequately meet its joint training requirements. Insufficient ability to train COCOM individuals / staffs and JTF and functional component HQ staff Submitted By: NORAD/NORTHCOM, PACOM, SOUTHCOM, STRATCOM, JS J7/JTD End state: COCOMs fully resourced to support individual and staff joint training requirements. POA&M: JS J7 use TC AoA Alt 5 to support the COCOMs‟ requirements.

Discussion: Current interagency participation as achievable, department to department. There is no required participation stipulation. (1) Current National Exercise definition in NEP too broad (2) Scope of exercises. Complexity, participation, and length (hours/days) is currently restricted by resource availability and, as such, reality is sacrificed (3) Lack of predictability and stability. Dates for exercises (already within next two years) can be changed unilaterally making advance planning for resources/forces very problematic(4) Emphasize building block approach. Impact: Submitted By: NORAD/NORTHCOM End state: POA&M:(1) Recommend that HSC lead on designation of “National Exercises” when full federal participation is expected (2) Re-categorize National Exercise Program into five categories (3) Expand the scope (duration) to permit achievement of exercise objectives (4) Develop a risk-based exercise plan, challenge participant at all levels. OPR/OCR: JS J7 39 28 Mar 06/car J O I NT Multiple Learning Mgt Systems F CH IE F F S OF S TA Issue 06NORADNORTHCOM-04: The use of multiple Learning Management Systems Discussion: No Joint Standard(s) exists for the identification of requirements dealing with data needed for a consistent, interoperable tracking of learner profiles, competencies or training records. It will take time to develop the solution to this Joint problem needed for a coherent Global Knowledge Distribution environment. Currently, multiple LMSs are being used across the Joint Community. Each of these LMSs have different requirements dealing with learner profiles, competency tracking and training record management. Impact: The use of multiple LMSs inhibits the ability to integrate training and personnel records and adds unnecessary complexity to integration with JTS and DRRS. Submitted By: NORAD/NORTHCOM End state: Universal Joint Learning Management System. POA&M: Make JKDDC funds available to support a single use of Universal Joint LMS. • Funds to manage a multi-COCOM LMS using the N-NC Commercial-Off-The-Shelf LMS as testbed. • Develop standards to address ontology, taxonomy, metadata, personnel tracking, security methods, interoperable learner profiles, and competency and training records for Joint community. •OPR/OCR: JFCOM/JS J7 40 28 Mar 06/car J O I NT Insufficient Resources F CH IE F F S OF S TA Issue 06NORADNORTHCOM-05: Immediate assistance in obtaining sufficient web-based resources to meet COCOM joint mission training requirements Discussion: “The e-learning content produced by JKDDC, to this point, has been conventional webbased instructional courseware. The Service knowledge portals have produced lots of content that are labeled as „knowledge objects,‟ but the content is not yet systematically packaged to allow for reuse." Some COCOMs have Joint ADL programs that are largely unfunded. Impact: COCOM Staffs are not fully trained to meet their joint mission requirements. Submitted By: NORAD/NORTHCOM End state: A timely, collaborative process that ensures JKDDC courseware development supports COCOM joint mission training requirements. POA&M: Recommend joint training shortfalls be identified as urgent readiness need. T2 funds for JKDDC be increased by $10M per year to address COCOM joint knowledge development and distribution requirements. Move from Industrial age production of courseware to much more rapid techniques involving real world mission planning, analysis and rehearsal. Focus on rapid development of a common set of joint tools, standards and specifications to provide immediate support to joint war fighter needs.

Discussion: JFWC designated office accredits joint courses. No one is assigned instructor certification. Impact: Joint Accreditation designation will lose significance in the joint training arena. Organizations create own instructor certification programs. Standards? Submitted By: DTRA End state: Joint instructor certification program POA&M: DTRA support to accredit Joint CBRNE courses. Use DTRA CBRNE SME‟s to review course content. For In-Resident Courses and Distance Learning Courses. DTRA support to prototype joint instructor certification program. OPR/OCR: JFCOM 42 28 Mar 06/car J O I NT Quarterly Allocation of CTP Funds F CH IE F F S OF S TA Issue 06USA-01: Quarterly allocations of CTP funds are not being made Discussion: CJCSI 3511.01, CJCS Exercise Program Funding, states the Joint Staff will issue the Services quarterly allocation of CTP funds. Impact: Units forced to use their own funds and then go through the reimbursement process. It often takes 2-3 months to get bills from the travel office to start the reimbursement process. Meantime, the Joint Staff Comptroller is requesting funds be returned for not being obligated in a timely manner. MIPR restricting use of CTP funds to a specific exercise, limits flexibility. If you get the money to units up front they can obligate when the CTP comes in, precluding time-consuming reimbursement process. Submitted By: US Army End state: CTP funds provided to units IAW established policy. POA&M: Comply with established policy and issue CTP funds to the Services on a quarterly basis. Units can then obligate CTP funds when initially purchasing the tickets. OPR/OCR: JS J7 43 28 Mar 06/car J O I NT Air Component Exercise Availability F CH IE F F S OF S TA Issue 06USAF-01: Support desired by COCOMs exceeds air component funding and personnel availability. Discussion: Air component uses the COCOMs priority list as basis for starting pint. Each exercise is analyzed for value and then they refine the priority list. Not all exercises can be supported. Impact: Not all COCOM exercises can be supported by Air Component. High cost of some exercises impacts Air Force play. Submitted By: USAF End state: POA&M: Mitigate by utilizing LVC capabilities and providing updated priorities to Air component. Recommend OSD develop credible long-range exercise program to regain Service and congressional confidence. Engage OSD to reinstate funding cut in FY 06/07.
