A few years ago DISAM decided to actively solicit more articles on process improvement for publication in the Journal. We have had a few articles over those years, but I am proud of this edition as we feature process improvement throughout the Security Assistance Cooperation environments of the Defense Security Cooperation Agency as well as and each of the Services. The section is kicked off by Ms. Freda Lodge the new Chief Performance Officer at DSCA. There are a number of projects she mentions in her article, along with additional articles from the DSCA perspective. Each Service provides details of their individual efforts, and their effective dialogue will pay greater dividends as the word is spread. In the interest of spreading the word, I would be remiss if I did not particularly key in on the Tri-Service Conference that the Air Force Security Assistance Center is hosting in Covington, Kentucky Cincinnati area on 2-5 November 2009. Check out the draft agenda, most current as we went to press you do not want to miss it The Legislation and Policy section has thirteen different articles stretching the bounds of Export Controls to Peacekeeping to QDR. Within the Security Cooperation Community, note also the change of commands at EUCOM new Commander, ADM Stavridis who came from SOUTHCOM now commanded by General Fraser. Furthermore, note the variety in the other articles that really get into the nuts and bolts of Security Cooperation including the Army doctrinal approach to implementing Security Force Assistance.
