Abstract:

This paper was prepared to summarize lessons learned from the 2001 Quadrennial Defense Review QDR 2001. RAND has been supporting the Joint Staff through the most recent defense reviews. Our research has examined the first QDR conducted in 1997 but also Included analysis of the less-formal Base Force Review in 1992. Our long-term involvement provides a unique perspective on how the Joint Staff has evolved in supporting the Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff CJCS in his expanded role mandated by the Goldwater-Nichols legislative changes to Title X statutes. This and subsequent changes to Title X, U.S. Code, include formal responsibilities to review and comment on defense matters that require analytic support as well as military judgment.
