A recently published Army Regulation, AR-5-3, Standard Installation Organization SIO, printed in draft form, proposes to standardize the alignment of the Army Continuing Education System ACES under the Directorate of Personnel and Community Activities DPCA at post level. Reaction by some ACES personnel and some Army commanders has been critical of this approach and has prompted others to wonder why ACES should be standardized when it is functioning effectively. The purpose according to the regulation, is to provide for greater coordination throughout the Army. This purpose assumes that the ACES mission is subsumed by the DPCA exclusively, notwithstanding the fact that ACES presently conducts programs which may be considered a proponent of Training. The ACES diverse slate of educational courses and programs traverses the DPCA and the Directorate, Plans, Training, and Mobilization DPTM and impacts quite assiduously on the three Rs - Recruitment, Readiness, and Retention.
