Joint & Combined Integration Directorate

America is heavily engaged in a global war on terrorism.  We face an extended conflict against an irreconcilable and highly adaptive enemy.  At the same time we are changing the Army.  This endeavor will demand an unprecedented degree of joint cooperation; all Services must move beyond joint interoperability (the assurance that Service capabilities can work together smoothly) and even beyond joint integration (collective efficiency and tempo).  To gain the right force structure mix one that is capable of meeting the breadth, depth and longevity of this challenge throughout the range of military operations (ROMO) the Services and Defense Agencies must achieve joint interdependence


Joint interdependence is a purposeful reliance on other Service capabilities to maximize their total complementary and reinforcing effects, while minimizing their relative vulnerabilities in order to achieve the mission requirements of the Joint Force Commander (JFC).  The prerequisites of a commitment to interdependence are: a broad understanding of the multiple strengths and limitations of each of the Services capabilities, clear agreement on how those capabilities will be integrated in any operational setting, and absolute mutual trust that, once committed, they will be employed as agreed.  Building this trust and understanding must begin early in institutional settings and then be reinforced by operational experience for all leaders.

JACI CHARTER:
  Fort Sill will establish a Joint and Combined Integration Directorate (JACI) to synchronize joint activities for Fort Sill. With the current emphasis on Joint Operations, there needs to be an office that synchronizes activities to avoid duplication and generate cross talk to ensure everyone is heading toward common goals.  The JACI will be established as part of TRADOCs reorganization.  Fort Sill will become a Joint Training Center that teaches members of the joint fires and effects team, the individual, command and staff skills required for the integration, coordination and synchronized application of the full range of joint fires and effects and serve as an integral hub in the joint command and control (C2) arena and will be an active participant in joint doctrine development and materiel issues.
