Attached is the Phase I report of the DSB Task Force on Enabling Joint Force Capabilities. For the current effort, the Task Force was charged with recommending ways to enhance the capabilities of our joint forces as quickly as the component forces can respond. The central theme of the task force is the challenge of ensuring that our forces are structured, equipped, and trained to come together quickly for effective joint force operations. Given the magnitude of this challenge, we divided our effort into two phases Phase I concentrates on the following main points 1. Helping identify specific characteristics and examples of organizations that could be capable of accepting responsibility and accountability for delivering the capability with needed responsiveness, and 2. Reviewing and understanding the current state of assigned responsibilities and accountability for joint capabilities to quickly bring combat forces together and focus them on joint objectives across a wide spectrum of possible contingencies. Phase II will concentrate on recommending further steps to strengthen the joint structure ability to quickly respond with effective joint force operations with integrated Service- and Agency-provided force capabilities.
