This regulation explains how the Army develops capabilities and allocates resources in support of the Department of Defense (DOD) security cooperation (SC). In accordance with DODD 5132.03 , SC is all interactions with foreign defense and security establishments that build allied and friendly military capabilities for self-defense and multinational operations; develop defense and security relationships that promote specific U.S. security interests, including all international armaments cooperation activities and security assistance activities; and provide U.S. forces with peacetime and contingency access to host nations. This regulation prescribes responsibilities and procedures for Army organizations within the planning, programming, budgeting, and execution (PPBE) and assessment framework in order to support the achievement of combatant command (COCOM) functional and theater end states.
Required and related publications and prescribed and referenced forms are listed in appendix A .
Abbreviations and special terms used in this publication are found in the glossary .
Responsibilities are listed in chapter 2 .
a. The Guidance for the Employment of the Force (GEF), which is derived from the National Security Strategy and the National Defense Strategy, provides the strategic framework to shape DOD planning and prioritizes theater and functional end states for each COCOM. Using the GEF and its companion document, the Joint Strategic Capabilities Plan, the COCOMs develop functional or theater campaign plans to achieve those end states.
b. DOD organizations conduct SC activities in support of geographic combatant command (GCC) theater campaign plan objectives and the global and regional end states specified in the GEF. DODD 5132.03 states that SC activities "shall be planned, programmed, budgeted, and executed with the same high degree of attention and efficiency as other integral DOD activities."
c. DODD 5100.01 states that the Army is the Nation's principal land force and promotes national values and interests by conducting military engagement, SC, and other activities.
d. Army service component commands (ASCCs) develop theater and functional campaign support plans that identify the SC capabilities required to achieve COCOM objectives. Headquarters, Department of the Army (HQDA) publishes the Army Campaign Support Plan (ACSP), as directed by the GEF, to detail how the Army develops and synchronizes those capabilities in support of campaign plan objectives and GEF end states.
e. The ACSP details how HQDA, Army commands (ACOMs), and direct reporting units (DRUs) support theater armies in the achievement of GCC theater campaign plan objectives. When required, these organizations may also support functional ASCCs in the achievement of functional combatant command functional campaign plan objectives.
f. The Army's role in SC may involve participation in a variety of overlapping military missions and U.S. Government foreign assistance activities (for example, security force assistance, foreign internal defense, security assistance, and security sector reform).
g. Legislation provides the Secretary of Defense and combatant commanders (CCDRs) with a number of authorities to conduct SC. The ACSP guides the Army approach toward managing and resourcing SC activities that support COCOM objectives. DA Pam 11-31 includes a list of SC programs for which the Army is currently responsible, as directed, for managing and/or executing.
h. Additional details related to the Army's role in SC planning, resourcing, execution, and assessment processes are found in DA Pam 11-31.
a. HQDA will provide Title 10, United States Code (10 USC) resources in support of SC demand. In order to establish SC demand, ASCCs must provide an annual status of their functional or theater campaign support plan. Additionally, theater Armies will provide country SC plans to HQDA. Army planning cycles are not always synchronous with COCOM planning cycles or with partner nation planning timelines. GEF objectives, history, and trends of partnering activities can help forecast future SC requirements. No later than 31 March of each year and in accordance with paragraphs 1-6 b and 1-6 c below, those plans will —
(1) Ensure SC activities support COCOM campaign plan objectives.
(2) Include a list of proposed SC tasks and activities proposed for two fiscal years beyond the year the plan is published. Each activity will be described by subject, supported objective, location, date (by fiscal quarter), required funding, and forces.
(3) Include an estimate of the funding and forces required to support each objective in the period from three to six years beyond the year in which the campaign plan is published.
(4) Complement or synchronize with intergovernmental activities, whenever possible and in coordination with the COCOMs.
b. The Theater Security Cooperation Management Information System (TSCMIS) is the authoritative data source of DOD's SC activities worldwide and supports and justifies DOD SC resourcing decisions. Theater Armies and ASCCs responsible for SC programs will enter SC data into the TSCMIS of their supported COCOM, in accordance with that command's policy. No later than March 31 of each year, these organizations will ensure that all data within their COCOM TSCMIS accurately reflects current and planned SC event data within their geographic or functional area of responsibility for two years beyond the year the plan is published. Ensuring that data is fully entered by this date will enable HQDA to publish the ACSP by 30 September of each year and will support HQDA's responsibilities within the program objective memorandum cycle.
c. The Army Global Outlook System (ARGOS), maintained by HQDA, is the Army system of record for justification of SC planning and activities. ARGOS assists HQDA, theater Armies, functional and other supporting elements to understand SC demand and effectiveness, and to provide resources necessary to support program execution. HQDA, ACOMs, and DRUs will enter their SC activities into ARGOS in accordance with requirements established by the Deputy Chief of Staff (DCS), G-3/5/7. No later than March 31 of each year, these organizations will ensure that data within ARGOS accurately reflects current and planned SC event data for which they are responsible. Ensuring that data is fully entered by this date will enable HQDA to publish the ACSP by 30 September of each year, which supports HQDA's responsibilities within the program objective memorandum cycle. These requirements, an explanation of ARGOS, and instructions for accessing and using ARGOS are found in DA Pam 11-31 .
d. Theater Armies and other organizations requesting reserve component (RC) or Army National Guard (ARNG) forces for noncontingency exercises, engagement, and mission support use the Army Training Information Management System (ARTIMS). AR 350-9 , applicable to RC and ARNG forces, governs the use of ARTIMS. ARTIMS will not be used in lieu of TSCMIS or ARGOS.
e. Individual organizations may require SC and SC-related data to be entered into additional systems, to include ARTIMS, when requesting RC forces (see AR 350-9). Additional systems will never be in lieu of TSCMIS and ARGOS.
f. During the planning cycle, HQDA, ACOMs, DRUs, and functional ASCCs will coordinate proposed activities with the theater Army that supports the GCC responsible for the theater in which those activities will occur. If required, HQDA, ACOMs, and DRUs will also coordinate their activities with the functional ASCC that supports the functional COCOM responsible for the specific function those activities support.
a. HQDA, through the Office of Army International Affairs (G-35), is the ultimate authority for validating select SC requirements for Army execution. The Office of Army International Affairs presents these requirements through the program evaluation groups during the PPBE process and works across the Army Staff (ARSTAF) resourcing community in order to validate the articulation of SC programs and requirements in order to support the achievement of COCOM functional and theater end states.
b. In accordance with 10 USC directives, HQDA directorates, theater Armies, ASCCs, ACOMs, and DRUs will submit SC resource requirements for consideration into the DOD PPBE and Global Force Management (GFM) processes to the appropriate Service or command. As part of the development of the ACSP, HQDA, theater Armies, ACOMs, ASCCs, and DRUs will submit those 10 USC SC resource requirements to the DCS, G-3/5/7.
c. To provide the means required to undertake SC, CCDRs provide SC requirements through the GFM process for validation by the Joint Staff. Once validated, requirements are passed to the appropriate Service force provider which will then source the unit capability to meet the requirement. Army conventional forces will be sourced in accordance with the force allocation decision matrix included in the GEF and the integrated requirement priority list. See AR 525-29 for a complete description of this process.
d. HQDA will receive from theater Armies and functional ASCCs annual summaries of Army-executed SC activities funded by non-Army sources.
a. Most SC programs currently managed and/or executed by the Army are detailed in DA Pam 11-31 .
b. SC programs and activities executed by Army conventional forces will be supported by, with, or through the theater Armies.
c. The Army will employ conventional forces to conduct SC activities. Forces can include, and are not limited to, theater assigned units, rotational units, units deployed under request for forces, mobile training teams, the ARNG, the U.S. Army Reserve, or a combination. Forces may be augmented as required by personnel from HQDA, ACOMs, and DRUs to support SC activities.
d. The Army may conduct SC independently through HQDA, functional ASCCs, ACOMs, and DRUs as described in DA Pam 11-31, in coordination with the theater Armies.
e. All SC executed by the Army in foreign countries will comply with the procedures described in the DOD Electronic Foreign Clearance Guide, which is available at https://www.fcg.pentagon.mil/fcg.cfm .
f. In accordance with DODD 5132.03 , no Army civilian or military personnel will make any commitments involving U.S. programs, performance, or resources without the proper authority to do so.
g. In accordance with AR 380-10 , Army components will comply with all laws and regulations governing the disclosure to foreign nations of classified, proprietary, and sensitive but unclassified information.
a. Assessments are conducted on a continual cycle that precede, guide, and conclude operations and activities. SC assessments are critical for determining progress toward COCOM campaign plan objectives. Assessments broadly consist of three actions —
(1) Monitoring the situation to collect relevant information.
(2) Evaluating progress toward attaining end state conditions, achieving objectives, and performing tasks.
(3) Recommending or directing action for improvement.
b. SC assessments require further information specific to working with partner nations. This will include, but is not limited to, collaborative planning and assessments with partner nation security forces and Department of the Army capability and capacity to support COCOM objectives.
c. Army organizations that plan SC activities will establish measures of performance and measures of effectiveness for those activities as a basis for assessing their progress towards specified SC objectives.
d. Theater Armies and functional ASCCs will enter post-activity assessment data in the TSCMIS of their supported COCOM.
e. HQDA, ACOMs, and DRUs will enter assessment data into ARGOS throughout the cycle of each activity and enter final activity data no later than 30 days after its conclusion. This process is described in DA Pam 11-31 .
f. As part of the development of the ACSP, theater Armies and functional ASCCs will submit an assessment of progress towards combatant command objectives to the DCS, G-3/5/7 for review.
