1 Process for Meeting Immediate Warfighter Needs Applying The Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff Instruction on Rapid Validation and Resourcing of Joint Urgent Operational NeedsJuly 2005
2 Agenda Provide overview of JRAC process Review the steps outlined in the recently released Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff Instruction (CJCSI)Rapid Validation and Resourcing of Joint Urgent Operational Needs (JUONS) in the Year of ExecutionDated 15 July 2005PurposeRolesProcess

4 CJCSI PurposeEstablishes policy and procedures to facilitate assessment, validation, sourcing, resourcing (in accordance with DOD R, “DOD Financial Management Regulations (FMRs)”) and fielding of operationally driven urgent, execution-year combatant commander needs. Generally, these needs can be considered as life- or combat-mission-threatening needs, based on unforeseen military requirements that must be resolved in days, weeks or months. This process is not intended to replace the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS) process but rather to accelerate the process of fielding readily available systems to satisfy joint urgent wartime needs.Delegates shared oversight responsibility of the process to validate and resource combatant commander urgent needs in the year of execution to the Director for Force Structure, Resources and Assessment, Joint Staff/J-8; Deputy Comptroller (Program/Budget) Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller); and the Joint Rapid Acquisition Cell (JRAC), Office of the Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics (OSD(AT&L)).Provides policies and procedures for initiation, review, evaluation, approval and followup of combatant commander urgent operational needs requests.
5 CJCSI PolicyRapidly validate and resource deployed and/or employed combatant commander’s JUONsQuickly address in order to prevent combat-related loss of life and/or mission failureConsidered as joint in nature (e.g., theater-wide combatant commander need spanning multiple Services) and outside of the scope of existing DOD 5000 series and Service processesNot intended to compete with any of the current Service processes but rather to complement themNot intended to replace any other Joint Staff process; e.g., the combating terrorism, rapid initiative fund (Cbt, RIF), combatant commander initiative fund (CCIF) or the command and control initiative program (C2IP) but rather potentially leverage off these processes and focus them when necessary in support of combatant commander JUONsPrescribe roles within the process

10 CJCSI ProcessThe Joint Urgent Operational Need (JUON) process begins when a Combatant Commander (COCOM) submits a JUONUse the format per CJCSI , JUON/IWN Request FormThe JUON will be submitted to the Joint Staff J8 via SIPRNETCOCOM sets relative priority for JUON requests prior to submissionSubmit simultaneously to the JRAC via the SIPRNET IWN websiteURL:Copies will be furnished to other Joint Staff directorates, as appropriate.
11 CJCSI Step 1J8 Vice Director (VDJ8), as the Gatekeeper, receives the JUON from COCOMForwards to the appropriate Functional Capabilities Board (FCB),Recommend Lead Service responsibilityNotify OSD(C)
12 CJCSI 3470.01 Step 2 FCB triages JUON request Clear understanding of the COCOM’s shortfall concerns and associated urgency for the JUON, the operational context of those shortfalls, the options available to answer those concerns, and a recommended approach by the Gatekeeper-designated lead Service/Agency.Conducted within 48 hours of receiptCharters FCB Working Group (WG)Typical FCB WG
13 CJCSI Step 3The Designated Service and/or Agency (DS/A) develops an implementation and funding strategy recommendation
14 Typical FCB WG Working Group membership usually includes: Requesting COCOMServices -- both operations, technical, budget and programming expertsJoint Staff -- J-3, J-8, and other J-Codes, as necessaryOSD ComptrollerOSD Program Analysis and EvaluationApplicable Combatant COCOMs -- particularly JFCOMASD NII as requiredJRAC Lead as required
15 Service & Support Agency FCB WG Representatives Each Service and Combat Support Agency should identify FCB WG representatives, based on areas of expertise, who would act as FCB WG members as required.This information should include name, organization, phone and fax numbers, and address and should be updated as necessary
16 CJCSI Step 4FCB reviews validation, implementation and funding recommendations from WG and DS/ADetermines priority within portfolio, in the case of multiple JUONs
17 CJCSI Step 5The JCB reviews validation and option recommendations, and determines priority across FCB portfolios and COCOMs
18 CJCSI Step 6Decision board, co-chaired by the Deputy Comptroller OSD(C) and J-8 (DDRA), and comprised of the Senior Budget and Financial Officers of the Services, OSD(PA&E), and JRAC Director, as lead in the case of an IWN, receives JCB recommendationsBudget Office Directors (BOD) BoardPossibly one of four possible actions:Approve the JCB recommendations given there is quorum supportProvide additional guidance to the responsible FCB to reevaluate the recommendationsRequest formal review/concurrence of the FCB-proposed options and recommendations by those organizations impacted by the possible decisions (particularly if impacted organizations are not part of the four Services)Direct the responsible FCB to take the issues and recommendations back JCB and/or the JROC for programmatic recommendations (essentially deferring the decision for Service Program Objective Memorandum consideration)

22 Glossary: Joint Urgent Operational Need An urgent operation need identified by a combatant commander involved in an ongoing named operation.A JUON’s main purpose is to identify and subsequently gain Joint Staff validation and resourcing of a solution, usually within days or weeks, to meet a specific high-priority combatant commander need.The scope of a combatant commander JUON will be limited to addressing urgent operational needs that: (1) fall outside of the established Service processes; and (2) most importantly, if not addressed immediately, will seriously endanger personnel or pose a major threat to ongoing operations.They should not involve the development of a new technology or capability; however, the acceleration of an Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration or minor modification of an existing system to adapt to a new or similar mission is within the scope of the JUON validation and resourcing process.
23 Glossary: Immediate Warfighter Need A subset of JUONs, so designated as IWNs by the Joint Rapid Acquisition Cell, and have a materiel or logistics solution that must be resolved within 120 days or less.This special category will confirm an added emphasis on the timely resolution of this urgent operation need and enhanced visibility to OSD and the Deputy Secretary of Defense.
24 Additional Glossary Terms CJCSI 3470.01 Budget Office Director’s (BOD) Board – A newly formed board established to adjudicate execution-year resourcing issues in support of fulfilling JUONs. A Deputy OUSD(Comptroller)/J-8, Deputy for Resources and Acquisition (DDRA) co-chaired group, comprised of Service HQs’ G/FO-level comptrollers. The BODs are responsible for reviewing and approving the Joint Capabilities Board recommendations to satisfy and resource a combatant commander JUON. Through this board, direction to reprogram funding within existing Service/Agency budgets will also occur.Designated Service/Agency (DS/A) - The Service or agency identified to develop an initial course of action(s) and approved to be responsible for the overall management and execution of a JUON.Functional Capabilities Board (FCB) – A G/FO-chaired, permanently established body that is responsible for the organization, analysis and prioritization of joint warfighting capabilities within an assigned functional area. Tasked to review recommendations of the FCB working group and provide recommendations on the priority of the JUON within their designated portfolio.
25 Additional Glossary Terms CJCSI 3470.01, continued Functional Capabilities Board (FCB) Joint Urgent Operational Need (JUON) Working Group (WG) - An action officer-level group tasked to review a specific JUON request, develop technical and resourcing options and provide recommendations on validation and options. Membership on the WG will include representation from the requesting combatant commander and will usually include operation, technical and financial representation from the following organizations, but may be tailored by the Director, J-8, or his or her representative to meet time and security sensitivities: Services, Joint Staff, OUSD(C), OSD(PA &E), applicable combatant commanders (particularly USJFCOM) and ASD(NII).Joint Capabilities Board (JCB) – The JCB functions to assist the Joint Requirements Oversight Council in carrying out its duties and responsibilities. The JCB reviews and validates the recommendations prior to submission to the BOD Board for JUON action. The Joint Staff/J-8 chairs the JCB, which is comprised of flag officer/general officer representatives of the Services.
26 COCOM Identify, validate and prioritize JUONs Forward “urgent and compelling” JUONs to the Joint Staff and, simultaneously, to the JRACAssist in the sourcing and resourcing of the needDirect urgent operational needs more appropriately satisfied through a Service process to the already existing Service process
27 ServicesRecommend solutions and funding strategies as requested by the gatekeeper (the Vice Director/J-8 (VDJ-8)) or directed by the Senior Comptroller Financial and Budget Officer Director’s (BOD) Board or JRACDesignated Services / Agency (DS/A)
28 Joint StaffProvide primary, direct communications with COCOMs for receipt of JUONs, via the SIPRNETVDJ-8, as the gatekeeper, will follow the procedures outlined in Enclosure A, CJCSIProvide subject matter expertise, to include intelligence, operational, etc., within the Functional Capabilities Board (FCB) Working Group (WG), as required
29 Functional Capability Board Provide a JUON validation recommendation to the JCB and/or JRACAdvise on the funding strategy the designated Service/agency (DS/A) proposes to the JCB
30 Joint Capability Board Validate the JUON recommendation in support of a decision by the OSD-Comptroller-chaired Budget Officer Directors (BOD) Board
31 Budget Office Directors Board Determine the appropriate fiscal resources for resolving a JUON, or for implementing a solutionEstablished to adjudicate execution-year resourcing issues in support of fulfilling JUONsA Deputy OUSD(Comptroller)/J-8, Deputy for Resources and Acquisition (DDRA) co-chaired group, comprised of Service HQs’ G/FO-level comptrollersThe BODs are responsible for reviewing and approving the Joint Capabilities Board recommendations to satisfy and resource a combatant commander JUONThrough this board, direction to reprogram funding within existing Service/Agency budgets will also occur
32 Linkage of RolesThe JUON process acts as the incubator for the identification of combat capability that later informs the USJFCOM Lessons Learned Program, Joint Quarterly Readiness Review (JQRR) and the combatant commander integrated priority list process.As critical gaps are identified via a JUON, they should be captured as lessons learned for subsequent, similar future or ongoing conflicts and identified as shortfalls in readiness for deploying and/or employed units.The gaps should be categorized into longer-term integrated priority lists if the JUON solution is temporary and a broader, more complete capability must be fielded though the standard acquisition process.
