Purpose

This regulation describes Army policy for its Force Generation Operations and its processes, and establishes policy for its Sustainable Readiness Process (SRP) to provide ready and responsive forces necessary for the effective prosecution execution of Unified Land Operations.

a. This regulation describes how the Army generates the Total Force as directed by its statutory responsibilities under Title 10, United States Code (10 USC) to organize, man, equip, and train forces in support of national security strategies and guidance. It discusses supporting and parallel processes and models used to plan, program, execute, and assess force readiness to enable the Army to sustainably build and maintain unit (tactical level), force (operational level), and Army (strategic level) readiness across the Force Generation timeframes.

b. Included in this discussion are the Force Generation primary functions and key processes: Direct Army Forces (Define and Prioritize), Develop Army Forces (Manage and Resource), Preserve Army Forces (Balance and Prioritize), and Provide Army Forces (Align and Prepare). Finally, this regulation establishes procedures for the integration and continual refinement of Force Generation decision-making, through a deliberate SRP, in order to provide forces to the Combatant Commander (CCDR) for known, emergent, and contingency requirements.

c. SR encompasses the planning, preparing, execution, and assessment of the Army's Force Generation process. SR informs the Army's resource decisions in order to maximize both mission and response readiness of the Total Army Force to meet known, emergent, and contingency requirements for Army forces. The execution goal of the SRP is to meet the Readiness Objectives agreed to by the Army's Senior Leadership. These Readiness Objectives are developed during SR's planning and preparing phase and are informed by the readiness requirements placed upon the force as well as the resources available. SR must focus on increasing and maintaining our units Personnel, Supply, Readiness, and Training (P, S, R, T) rating, maximizing the use of available resources. SR is a reflection of an Army Mindset change to being ready all the time, thereby achieving readiness consistent with current military strategy, threats to National security, and resourcing levels.
