Abstract : What a jam-packed DISAM Journal as we hit mid-summer - only highlights the many and varied activities that our workforce deals with on any given day. There are a number of articles that I could highlight on this initial page, but I will simply note this one - as it is one that many chomp at the bit for each year. The signifi cant article is the annual synopsis of fi scal year (FY) 2010 Security Cooperation Legislation which makes up about one-third of this edition. Many view it as a great single source that ties all the initiatives together in an easy-to-read package. With the emphasis regarding the training of our workforce, let me focus my comments on that effort that is taking a lot of initiative and time by folks within Combatant Commands , CONUSbased security cooperation (SC) organizations and DISAM. As noted in the last edition of the Journal 31-4 (you may want to go back and review that if you missed it) and addressed in VADM Wieringa's comments in an article printed in this edition on page 183 and a brief update by Greg Sutton on page 185), efforts continue in pursuit of the DEPSECDEF's High Priority Performance Goal, to ensure that at least 95% of the SC workforce has their appropriate level of DISAM (SC) training by the end of FY 2011 - with even greater focus on the interim goal of 80% by the end of FY 2010. Within this quarter DISAM has fi elded the Security Cooperation Workforce Database (SCWD) on the Security Assistance Network (SANweb) which provides for the constant update and monitoring of personnel making up our workforce - with additions continuing to come in we now have over 11,000 billets and currently almost 10,700 personnel worldwide in the many constituent organizations.
