The 1986 Goldwater-Nichols Reorganization Act was intended to improve the management, development, and deployment of JSOs. Title IV, the management policy portion of the Act, requires all services to identify, train, and assign promotable officers to fill joint duty billets. The report describes a simulation tool that allows the Navy to assess its ability to comply with Title IV and analyze the impact of Title IV policies on Navy Officer Personnel Management. All crucial aspects of Title IV and the Navy career path as defined by the Navy have been incorporated into JSOMS. JSOMS has already gained a high level of acceptance and use in the Navy. Several Navy policies have been streamlined to increase the number of officers obtaining joint credit and ultimately being designated as JSO as a result of using the model.
