RAPID VALIDATION AND RESOURCING OF JOINT URGENT OPERATIONAL NEEDS (JUONS) IN THE YEAR OF EXECUTION
|Publication Date:||15 July 2005|
Establishes policy and procedures to facilitate assessment, validation, sourcing, resourcing (in accordance with DOD 7000.14-R, "DOD Financial Management Regulations (FMRs)") and fielding of operationally driven urgent, execution-year combatant commander needs. Generally, these needs can be considered as life- or combatmission- threatening needs, based on unforeseen military requirements that must be resolved in days, weeks or months. This process is not intended to replace the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS) process but rather to accelerate the process of fielding readily available systems to satisfy joint urgent wartime needs.
Delegates shared oversight responsibility of the process to validate and resource combatant commander urgent needs in the year of execution to the Director for Force Structure, Resources and Assessment, Joint Staff/J-8; Deputy Comptroller (Program/Budget) Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller); and the Joint Rapid Acquisition Cell (JRAC), Office of the Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics (OSD(AT&L)).
Provides policies and procedures for initiation, review, evaluation, approval and followup of combatant commander urgent operational needs requests.
This instruction applies to combatant commands with a JUON and the Joint Staff, Services, combat support agencies and combatant commands in support of the JUON process. It can only be used to field Acquisition Category (ACAT) II, III or IV equivalent programs. In addition, this instruction applies to supporting combatant commands deployed or already operationally employed in support of SecDef-directed missions. Requests should be classified in accordance with DOD Directive (DODD) 5200-1, DODD 5200.1-R and DODD 7000-14R. Because support from other DOD offices and agencies will be critical to effectively address validation of JUONs, this instruction encourages their participation and provides these offices and agencies with necessary process information to enable their participation.
