ARMY FORCE STABILIZATION SYSTEM
|Publication Date:||15 October 2007|
This regulation applies to the Active Army, the Army National Guard of the United States, and the United States Army Reserve (for example, Regular Army Soldiers and select Army National Guard and Army Reserve Soldiers on active duty). This publication is applicable during full mobilization unless otherwise stated.
This regulation describes policies and procedures for the implementation of the Army's Force Stabilization System of the Active Army (for example, Regular Army Soldiers and select Army National Guard of the United States and Army Reserve Soldiers on active duty), and is based upon, and supplemental to, laws and regulations of higher authority. Force Stabilization (FS) consists of (a) Stabilization (as described in chap 3-2), and (b) Unit Focused Stability (UFS), a staffing process that reduces turbulence within units, consisting of (1) Lifecycle Management (LM) and (2) Cyclic Management (CM) (as described in chaps 4-4 and 5-3 respectively). This regulation prescribes the personnel management techniques, programs, policies, and functions necessary to implement this staffing system and is to be used in conjunction with other personnel-oriented Army regulations, circulars, and pamphlets. This regulation has precedence when there is a conflict with other personnel policy regulations.
