Recent military operations in Haiti and Bosnia have shown that civil-military tasks are crucial to the overall accomplishment of the mission. Operations of this nature require coordination of U.S. interagency participants, international relief organizations, and military participants. Current U.S. policy for interagency coordination of Complex Contingency Operations is contained in Presidential Decision Directive 56. This directive does not consider the important role of the Combatant CINC in planning or executing the civil-military objectives inherent in this type of operation and how they must be synchronized with the interagency process. This paper will focus on integration of the interagency process and Civil Affairs Campaign Planning by the Combatant CINC. It will analyze interagency and military aspects of planning, training, force requirements, coordination, deployment, and employment of interagency and military assets in a complex contingency operation while providing recommendations on improving this relationship.
