Defense Management: Improved Planning, Training, and Interagency Collaboration Could Strengthen DoD¿s Efforts in Africa
DIANE Publishing, 2010 - 68 pages
When the U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) became fully operational in 2008, it inherited well over 100 activities, missions, programs, and exercises from other Department of Defense (DoD) organizations. AFRICOM initially conducted these inherited activities with little change. However, as AFRICOM has matured, it has begun planning and prioritizing activities with its four military service components, special operations command, and task force. Some activities represent a shift from traditional warfighting, requiring collaboration with the Department of State, U.S. Agency for Internat. Development, and other interagency partners. This report assessed AFRICOM in five areas with respect to activity planning and implementation. Illustrations.
