Abstract:

Joint Interagency Task Force East JIATFE is an example of a multiagency, interdisciplinary approach that uses various elements of national power to accomplish an objective. This process is necessary to our country in a time when the military is shrinking and the world changing. In order for a JIATF to be successful in achieving the operational or strategic objectives there must be cooperation and coordination among all its supporting agencies. A JIATF can also enhance cooperation at the operational level by enhancing trust and understanding among the federal agencies. This paper will address several options that a commanderdirector can use to get different organizations with distinctly different goals and philosophies to work together efficiently and eliminate competition.
